Theodore Cardwell Barker
In about 1953 London Transport Executive decided that the story of the development of their undertaking should be put on record, the intention being to trace the rôle of public transport in London from the early nineteenth century onwards. Harry Pollins (an ecoonomist at Ruskin College who specialised in railways) did the preliminary research during 1954 to 1958. Barker at the LSE covered the period to the early 1920s and Robbins at London Transport covered the remainder.
