Administrative history:
OUTLINE OF THE CAREER OF SIR HAROLD THOMPSON
Sir Harold Thompson, known affectionately to all his friends as 'Tommy', was a distinguished Oxford scientist and teacher who made exceptional contributions to international science; he was also a lifelong enthusiast for association football. This account of his career draws very considerably on Sir Rex Richards's Royal Society memoir of Thompson (Biographical Memoirs of Fellows of the Royal Society, 31, 573 - 610).
Harold Warris Thompson was born in 1908 in Wombwell, Yorkshire, where his father was a colliery manager. He was educated from the age of nine at King Edward VII School in Sheffield and in 1924 obtained an open scholarship to Trinity College, Oxford, where his tutor was C.N. Hinshelwood. He graduated with a first in Natural Sciences (Chemistry) in 1929. Thompson then spent a year working in Berlin with Fritz Haber (and meeting such great scientists as Planck, Einstein, Nernst, von Laue, Schrodinger and Bodenstein) before returning to Oxford to take up a Fellowship at St. John's College.
Thompson very quickly established himself as one of the finest teachers in the university and many of his students went on to achieve great scientific distinction. They include Lord Kearton, Lord Dainton, Sir Rex Richards, Professor Jack Linnett and Professor David Whiffen - all Fellows of the Royal Society.
Thompson's main research interest in Berlin had been gas reactions but after his return to Oxford he moved the focus of his research activity to chemical spectroscopy and in particular to work on the infrared. During the war he worked for the Ministry of Aircraft Production in collaboration with G.B.B.M. Sutherland on the infrared spectroscopic analysis of enemy aviation fuels, and in 1943 he and Sutherland were members of a British scientific mission which visited the U.S.A. on behalf of the Ministry.
After the war Thompson played a major role 'in showing how infrared spectra might be applied to a quite amazing range of chemical studies' and until retirement he 'continued with his scientific work, constantly breaking new ground and exploring new ideas'. The importance of Thompson's research was recognised with many honours, including his election to the Fellowship of the Royal Society in 1946 and the award of the Society's Davy Medal in 1965.
Thompson's contributions to international science were quite exceptional. His year in Berlin convinced him of the importance of international scientific cooperation and he was quick to renew contacts at the end of the Second World War, visiting Germany in 1947 under the auspices of the Control Commission's Research Branch. In April 1949 he received an invitation to go out to Germany for a three-year period as Director of the Research Branch but he felt obliged to decline this invitation as too disruptive of his scientific career at Oxford. His interests and experience in international affairs made him an inspired choice as Foreign Secretary of the Royal Society, 1965-1971. He expanded and encouraged scientific exchanges, making contacts, devising new programmes and securing the funding from private foundations and government. Thompson also made important contributions to international science as President of the International Council of Scientific Unions (ICSU), 1963-1966 and President of the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry (IUPAC), 1973-1975. Furthermore, Thompson's contributions to international relations were not limited to science. As Chairman of the Great Britain - China Committee, 1972-1974 and of the Great Britain - China Centre, 1974-1980 he played a significant part in developing non-political relations between the two countries after the dislocations of the Cultural Revolution.
No outline of Thompson's career would be complete without a few words on association football. He played football for Oxford from his first term and was awarded his Blue in 1928. He became Treasurer of the Oxford University Association Football Club in 1931 and served the Club for over half a century. His love of the amateur game is also illustrated by the founding in 1948 of Pegasus, a combined Oxford and Cambridge eleven, to play in the Football Association Amateur Cup Competition. In 1941 Thompson became the Oxford representative on the Football Association Council and over the years he played an increasingly important role in the Association's affairs, culminating in his period as Chairman, 1976-1981. As befits someone with Thompson's interest in international cooperation, he was also actively involved in the affairs of the Union of European Football Associations (UEFA).

The material is presented in the order shown in the List of Contents. Additional explanatory notes accompany many of the Sections, sub-sections and individual entries in the body of the catalogue, and the following paragraphs aim only to draw attention to matters of particular substance or interest.
The collection is regrettably a very unbalanced one. There is no personal or biographical material and very little record of Thompson's research. On the other hand, Thompson's work for the Royal Society, international scientific organisations and the Football Association is extensively documented.
Section A (Research and teaching) is slight. The wartime hydrocarbons research is represented by a small number of reports (less than half by Thompson) and a little correspondence. This work is documented much more extensively in the manuscripts collection of Thompson's collaborator, Sir Gordon Sutherland (CSAC 89/7/82, deposited in Cambridge University Library) which includes the report of the 1943 mission to the United States and correspondence between Thompson and Sutherland, 1937-47.
SECTION B (The Royal Society) is the largest and most important section in the catalogue. Almost all the Royal Society papers relate to international relations and document very fully the new initiatives which marked Thompson's Foreign Secretaryship. Of particular interest are Thompson's International Relations Committee papers and the papers he grouped by region, Western Europe and Israel, East Europe and USSR, China, Latin America and so on. The Western European papers document the hugely successful European Science Exchange Programme and the East European and Chinese papers illustrate some of the very serious problems faced by Thompson in his efforts to promote international science - in the case of East Europe, the Russian invasion of Czechoslovakia and in the case of China, the Cultural Revolution. This section also provides comprehensive documentation of a further great success for Thompson in European scientific cooperation, the EUCHEM conferences. Thompson's contributions to the Royal Society outside the international relations area are represented by his Education Committee and Scientific Information Committee papers.
Section C (Societies and organisations) also provides important documentation of Thompson's contributions to international science. Of particular interest in this regard are manuscripts relating to his work for the Research Branch of the Control Commission for Germany, for the International Council of Scientific Unions (ICSU) and for the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry (IUPAC) including the Commission on Molecular Spectroscopy and the Triple Commission on Spectroscopy. Not all the societies and organisations listed here are scientific, however. Thompson kept very detailed records of his work for the Great Britain - China Committee (later Great Britain - China Centre) and shorter sequences of material relating to the Maison Francaise d'Oxford (member of the Oxford Committee) and Shrewsbury School (governor).
Section D (Visits and conferences) is a very small section which does not adequately reflect the extensive travel undertaken by Thompson during his scientific career. However, this travel is documented to a considerable degree in Sections B and C.
Section E (Football Association) is a very substantial section which records (particularly for the last decade of Thompson's life) the enormous amount of work he undertook for the Association. There is also full documentation of the many problems facing football in the 1970s, especially hooliganism amongst its supporters. By contrast Thompson's work for the Oxford University Association Football Club and Pegasus is not documented in the collection.

NCUACS 2.1.88/B.520 - B.533 THOMPSON'S PERSONAL CORRESPONDENCE AS FOREIGN SECRETARY
The great bulk of Thompson's Royal Society papers relate to international relations and this is very appropriate given the great services he was able to perform in expanding the Royal Society's international activities during his period as Foreign Secretary, 1965-1971. Particularly useful in charting Thompson's role in this expansion are his International Relations Committee papers and the papers he grouped by region, Western Europe and Israel, East Europe and USSR, China, Latin America and so on. Also of great interest is the comprehensive documentation of the inception and organisation (from the Royal Society) of the EUCHEM conferences which Thompson first proposed in 1963 during his period as Chairman of the British National Committee for Chemistry. Material complementary to Thompson's Royal Society international relations papers is to be found under Council for Scientific Policy, Great Britain - China Committee, International Council of Scientific Unions (ICSU) and International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry (IUPAC) in Section C.
Other contributions by Thompson to Royal Society affairs are represented by papers relating to the Education and Scientific Information Committees.
Thompson kept together in specially designated folders what he called his personal correspondence as Foreign Secretary and this special designation is acknowledged by a separate subsection.

INTERNATIONAL RELATIONS COMMITTEE  [no ref.]  1965-1979

Administrative history:
The Royal Society set up its International Relations Committee in 1937 to advise on cooperation with the International Council of Scientific Unions (ICSU) and Thompson was an ex officio member of the Committee as Chairman of the British National Committee for Chemistry from 1960. After he became Foreign Secretary of the Royal Society, Thompson recommended that proposals to expand the Society's overseas activities required the replacement of the large Committee designed to deal with ICSU affairs and its component bodies with a smaller committee to discuss general policy in foreign relations. The recommendation was accepted and the new Committee met for the first time on 30 March 1966 with Thompson as its Chairman. The abolition of the Committee in 1979 was explained to Thompson in terms of the role of Council in dealing with policy problems in international relations and the concern of the Officers to save money by reducing the number of committees.

EUROPEAN CHEMICAL CONFERENCES (EUCHEM)  [no ref.]  1963 - 1984

Administrative history:
At the 1960 Paris meeting and the 1962 Brussels meeting of the Chairmen of European National Committees for Chemistry there was some consideration of West European discussion meetings. At the 1963 meeting held at the Royal Society Thompson introduced a note which he had prepared on the need for small conferences of the 'Gordon' type and possible action which might be taken to arrange such conferences in the next few years. The discussion which followed showed that all present were in favour of proceeding with the plan for something along the lines of 'Gordon' Conferences in Europe and the meeting agreed that Chairmen of National Committees should explore the views in their countries and submit suggestions to a sub-committee (including Thompson) whose purpose should be to collect information and investigate possible locations, finance, subjects, name and membership of organising committees. Questionnaires were sent out with the minutes and the information was returned to Thompson who presented the results in a paper to a meeting of the sub-committee at the Royal Society in March 1964.
The meeting agreed to proceed at once to arrange conferences for 1965 and to call them European Chemical Conferences (EUCHEM). The meeting also agreed to adopt the general princples of organisation suggested by Thompson.
'( i) Attendance should be limited. The upper limit should be 100 active participants, and often a much smaller number, say 40-50 would be preferable. There should be a carefully arranged balance between younger and more senior members, and when it is relevant between workers in pure research and those from industrial laboratories. Speakers should be selected on the basis of their known ability to contribute to the subject of the meeting.
( ii) Nothing should be written, recorded or published, and the information presented should not be quoted elsewhere without the approval of the speaker concerned.
(iii) Discussion should be confined to mornings and evenings, leaving the afternoons free for recreation, relaxation, or informal discussions.
(iv ) Within the formal sessions, the number of introductory papers should be restricted, two or three each morning, and one each evening. Meetings might last 3 - 5 days.
( v ) All participants (including members of family if present) should live at the location of the meeting.'
Organised on these principles EUCHEM conferences proved a great success in European scientific cooperation. In an article in Chemistry in Britain written to mark the tenth year of the conferences, Thompson pointed out that between 1965 and 1973 55 conferences were held in 13 different countries, covering a wide range of topics in physical, inorganic, and analytical chemistry, some with a strongly 'applied' flavour. Nine conferences had been held in 1974 and ten were planned for 1975.
Thompson served as chairman of the international organising committee until just before his death in December 1983 and wrote all the annual Progress Reports. The secretariat was provided by the Royal Society.

WESTERN EUROPE AND ISRAEL  [no ref.]  1965 - 1981

Administrative history:
The expansion of scientific exchanges with Western Europe was one of the most important initiatives of Thompson's period as Foreign Secretary. In 1965 and 1966 discussions took place within the Royal Society and between the Society and the Council for Scientific Policy, the Department of Education and Science and possible financial supporters. By November 1966 Thompson was able to announce in the 'International Relations' supplement to the Bulletin that the Society had decided to support small specialised European research conferences, short study visits by senior scientists between important centres of research in different countries, and longer vists by postgraduate workers in both pure and applied science to chosen laboratories. Funding had already been provided by the Wates Foundation and from Pergamon Press through Mr Robert Maxwell and in 1967 further funds were made available by the Ford Foundation.
In December 1966 the Royal Society called a meeting in London of representatives of academies or equivalent organisations in Western Europe to discuss its proposals, which were immediately and unanimously approved. Grants for study visits and research conferences were made in January 1967 and the first postgraduate fellowships were awarded in March. At about this time the DES placed a substantial sum at the Royal Society's disposal for 1967-1968 provided that balancing arrangements could be made with the other countries concerned. This plan was discussed at a second meeting of national representatives at Bad Godesberg in April and as a result appropriate balancing agreements were negotiated with Germany, France, Italy, Sweden, the Netherlands, Switzerland and Spain. At a meeting in Amsterdam in November 1967 it was decided to expand the programme by general increases in the 'balancing sums' and at a fourth meeting at the Royal Society in October 1968 all countries in Western Europe became partners.
While arrangements for a European scientific exchange programme were worked out, progress was also being made on scientific interchange with Israel. In 1967 the Royal Society accepted an offer of £8,000 a year for three years from the Hon Marcus Sieff, on behalf of several donors, to promote scientific exchanges with Israel and, after a visit to Israel by Thompson, the Israeli authorities agreed to contribute £2,500. During 1968 very considerable additional sums were raised from private sources to extend the scheme further.
Thompson kept together in a single chronological sequence his very extensive manuscripts relating to the Royal Society's activities in Western Europe and Israel and that arrangement is respected here. The record is particularly full for Thompson's time as Foreign Secretary, 1965-1971, and continues less comprehensively for a further decade. The material includes correspondence, committee papers, progress reports, and Thompson's ms notes and drafts.

A suggestion that a small delegation from the Royal Society visit Latin America was discussed at meetings of the Society's International Relations Committee during 1967, and by the Foreign Secretary (Thompson) and other Officers of the Society with Professor Carlos Chagas, the permanent delegate of Brazil at UNESCO. Thompson also consulted several Fellows and others with first hand knowledge of Latin America. On the basis of these discussions and consultations the Officers proposed that the delegation should visit Brazil and Mexico. Accordingly arrangements were made for a delegation comprising the President (P.M.S. Blackett), the Biological Secretary (A.A.Miles), the Foreign Secretary, two Vice-Presidents (G.B.R. Feilden and R.D.Keynes) and the Deputy Executive Secretary (R.J.W. Keay) to visit Brazil, 10-24 August and Mexico, 24 August - 4 September 1968. In June 1968 when arrangements for Brazil and Mexico were well advanced the British Ambassador in Cuba inquired through the Foreign Office if members of the delegation could spend a few days in Cuba. Thompson and Feilden agreed, travelling from Mexico to Havana on 2 September and returning to Mexico City on 6 September.

COUNCIL FOR SCIENTIFIC POLICY (CSP)  [no ref.]  1965-71

Contents:
Thompson's association with the Council for Scientific Policy reflects the enthusiastic support for international cooperation in science which characterised his term as Foreign Secretary of the Royal Society. He was a member of the CSP's Working Party on International Scientific Relations (first meeting, 4 February 1966) and subsquently served on the CSP Standing Committee on International Scientific Relations. The material consists principally of committee papers, with a little correspondence and Thompson's ms notes. It is presented in a chronological sequence under the heading general correspondence and papers, which also includes material relating to working groups on international research facilities (1968) and the proposed laboratory for the European Molecular Biology Organisation (1969-70).
Thompson kept as a separate sequence his papers relating to the Working Party on Scientific Interchange and this arrangement has been respected here. This working party was set up in July 1969 by the CSP's International Relations Committee 'to review the operation of the Royal Society European Programme, and to make recommendations for its future development in the light of existing arrangements for scientific exchanges in Europe'. Thompson was Chairman and its members included representatives of the Department of Education and Science, the Research Councils and the Royal Society (D.C.Martin). The material consists of correspondence, committee papers and Thompson's ms notes. For a copy of the report presented to the CSP see NCUACS 2.1.88/C.89. For a duplicated typescript draft with ms revisions, see NCUACS 2.1.88/C.91.

FOREIGN OFFICE  [no ref.]  1947-56

Administrative history:
Thompson was a member of the Chemistry Panel of Consultants to the Research Branch of the Control Commission for Germany, and in this capacity made a number of visits to Germany. Other members of the Panel were A.R. (later Lord) Todd and H.J.Emeleus. In April 1949 Thompson was informally approached about going out to Germany for a three-year period as Director of the Research Branch. He declined, doubting whether he could conveniently go out even for a short period, while a lengthy stretch would have meant a permanent break with his current job, and a major upheaval. At the end of 1949 Thompson accepted an invitation to serve on a selection committee for German dozenten to be placed in British universities and visited Germany in that capacity in March 1950.

GREAT BRITAIN - CHINA COMMITTEE (later GREAT BRITAIN - CHINA CENTRE)  [no ref.]  1972-1983


Related information: For material relating to visits by a Chinese XI to Britain in 1979 and Norwich City F.C. to China in 1980, see NCUACS 2/1/88/E.234 - E.240.
For material relating to a possible visit to China by a Shrewsbury School football team see NCUACS 2/1/88/C.371, NCUACS 2/1/88/C.372.

Administrative history:
In 1972 the Great Britain - China Committee was established to facilitate cultural and similar exchanges 'in the light of the improvement in relations between our two countries, in particular exemplified by the agreement to exchange Ambassadors' (C.108). Thompson accepted an invitation to chair the Committee which included Mr Malcolm Macdonald, Lord Trevelyan, Sir John Keswick, representatives of the political parties, the Royal Society and the British Academy. Initially the British Council agreed to provide and house the Secretariat. The Committee's first Secretary was the Director of the Council's East Europe Department, I.H. Williams who was succeeded towards the end of 1972 by J.F.H.Villiers. Successes of the Committee included an exhibition of Chinese art treasures at the Royal Academy and a visit of Shanghai acrobats, both in 1973. However, Chinese relations with the international football authorities frustrated early efforts to send a British football team to China.
In 1974 the Committee was transformed into the Great Britain - China Centre open to public membership. It had its own premises in Queen Anne's Gate, and a Director to manage its day-to-day affairs. The first Director was J.F.Ford who was succeeded in 1978 by Miss Elizabeth Wright. The Centre was controlled by an Executive Committee chaired (until 1980) by Thompson. Its members included Members of Parliament and representatives of organisations interested in Chinese affairs. Thompson visited China in 1974 as head of a Royal Society delegation and in 1979 with a Great Britain - China Centre delegation.
The material presented here in a chronological sequence is principally Thompson's correspondence with the Secretaries of the Committee and Directors of the Centre, Chinese officials, officers of other interested bodies such as the British Council, Football Association, Foreign and Commonwealth Office and Royal Society, and others. There are also committee papers, progress reports and newsletters.

Related information: See also Royal Society British National Committee for ICSU NCUACS 2/1/88/B.62- B.74.

Administrative history:
Thompson's long association with ICSU is a further reflection of his great enthusiasm for international scientific cooperation. He attended its meetings frequently and at the Vienna meeting in 1963 was elected President providing distinguished service to the organisation for three years. Thompson was a member of the Committee on Future Structure 1962-63 - he chaired its second meeting - and chairman of the Committee on Admissions and Organisation from 1966.

Contents:
Much of the surviving material relates to discussions about the reorganisation of ICSU to cope with its greatly increasing activities. There is also material relating to Thompson's 1964 visit to Spain as President and in the mid 1970s material relating to the political problems associated with South Africa and Taiwan.

INTERNATIONAL UNION OF PURE AND APPLIED CHEMISTRY (IUPAC)  [no ref.]  1955-75

Administrative history:
Thompson's long and important association with IUPAC is admirably summarised in R.E.Richards' memoir for the Royal Society (Biographical Memoirs of Fellows of the Royal Society, 31,1985, 589-590):
In 1956 Tommy became a member of the British National Committee for Chemistry, served as its Chairman from 1960 to 1966, and through it became interested in the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry (IUPAC). He suggested that IUPAC should establish a Commission on Molecular Spectroscopy, and this was agreed at the 1957 meeting of IUPAC after what Tommy remembered as an all night meeting with Professor B.L. Crawford to draw up the rules and plans. One of its first tasks was to prepare infrared wavelength secondary standards; the Commission continues actively, has served as a useful meeting ground for spectroscopists worldwide, and has published reports and recommendations for universal use. This was the start of a long association with IUPAC; Tommy was Chairman of the Commission on Molecular Spectroscopy from 1957 to 1963, and of the Triple Commission on Sepctroscopy (Physics, Chemistry,Astronomy) from 1965 to 1969. He became a member of the Bureau of the Physical Chemistry Section (1963-67), of the Executive Committee (1967-71), was Vice-President from 1971 to 1973 and President from 1973 to 1975.

SECTION E FOOTBALL ASSOCIATION  NCUACS 2.1.88/E.1 - E.527  [n.d.]

Administrative history:
Football was a lifelong enthusiasm of Thompson's and he did an enormous amount of work for the Football Association over many years. He was on the FA Council from 1941, Chairman of the Instructional Committee, 1952-57 and became Vice-Chairman of the Finances and General Purposes Committee in 1971. He later served as Chairman of the Association, 1976-81 and was made a life Vice-President in 1980. Thompson also contributed greatly to international cooperation when he became a member of the Executive Committee of the Union of European Football Associations in 1974. For further details of Thompson's work for the Football Association see the account in R.E.Richards' memoir for the Royal Society (Biographical Memoirs of Fellows of the Royal Society, 31, 1985, 598-599).

The material presented here is predominantly very recent from the period of Thompson's Chairmanship to the end of his life. There is correspondence with FA Secretaries, especially E.A.Croker, and extensive documentation of Thompson's contribution to FA committees and of his work for organisations such as the FA Youth Trust, the Disabled Sports Foundation and the Football Grounds Improvement Trust. Thompson was Chairman of the Football Association at what proved a very difficult time and many of the problems, especially hooliganism amongst football supporters, are well documented here
Although most of the material is recent there is a small subsection 'Early days' which relates to the Conference of County and Other Associations affiliated to the Football Association, 1934-60.
Thompson's work for the Oxford University Association Football Club (Treasurer from 1931 and President from 1953) and for Pegasus (the combined Oxford and Cambridge eleven formed by Thompson to play in the FA Amateur Cup Competition) is not documented in the present collection.

EARLY DAYS  [no ref.]  1934-60

YOUTH TRUST  [no ref. or date]

Administrative history:
The F A Youth Trust was established in October 1972 with the principal aim of enabling and encouraging pupils of schools and universities... 'to play Association football and other games or sports and thereby to assist in ensuring that due attention is given to the physical education and development of such pupils, as well as the development and occupation of their minds' (E.213). Thompson was one of the original Trustees.
The Charity Commissioners were satisfied that the trust was of a charitable nature, but in 1973 the Inland Revenue challenged this status. The subsequent legal proceedings were lengthy, the case eventually going to the House of Lords where judgment was given in favour of the trust in 1980.

Contents:
Most of the surviving material relates to these legal proceedings and includes correspondence, notes of meetings, opinions of counsel, affidavits and judgments.

CHINA  [no ref. or date]


Related information: For further papers relating to football and China see NCUACS 2/1/88/C.108-C.249.

Administrative history:
Thompson played a major role in the development of non-political ties with China as Chairman of the Great Britain-China Committee, 1972-74 (qv) and of the Great Britain-China Centre, 1974-80. Since Thompson was also chairman of the Football Association, 1976-81, it was inevitable that football would have a significant role in developing Anglo-Chinese relations during this period.

Contents:
The papers presented here concern footballing contacts, 1978-80, and in particular the visits of a Chinese XI to Britain in 1979 and Norwich City F C to China in 1980. The material is principally Thompson's correspondence with the F A and the Chinese Embassy.

CROWD CONTROL  [no ref. or date]


Related information: For further material on crowd control see NCUACS 2/1/88/E.441, NCUACS 2/1/88/E.442, NCUACS 2/1/88/E.464-E.467, NCUACS 2/1/88/E.491.

Administrative history:
The extent to which problems of crowd control and football hooliganism came to dominate public perception of the game from the mid 1970s is fully reflected in the correspondence and papers catalogued here. Amongst the interested parties represented are the F A and Football League, individual clubs, Government, police, British Rail and many members of the general public who wrote to Thompson to express their concern and offer suggestions. The F A set up its own committee on crowd control in November 1976 and participated in the inquiries of Government and others. Various aspects of the problem are identified and discussed in the papers including conduct of players on the field, transport of supporters to matches, policing of matches, and sale of alcohol at football grounds. There is also a significant collection of background material including press-cuttings, printed and duplicated reports, programmes of action, and academic studies of the problem.

ENGLAND TEAM MANAGER  [no ref. or date]

Don Revie  [no ref. or date]

Contents:
The papers presented here relate principally to Revie's resignation from the position of England team manager in July 1977 to take up a position as 'football supremo' of the United Arab Emirates, and the response of Thompson and the FA to his resignation. Revie was charged with bringing the game into disrepute and suspended from all football management in the jurisdiction of the FA for ten years. The suspension was later set aside in the High Court. The footballer, Alan Ball, was also involved in FA disciplinary proceedings because of allegations in his autobiography that he had received cash inducements from Revie to join Leeds United when Revie was manager.

The FA submitted written evidence in June and again in August, 1976, when Thompson and other FA representatives also gave evidence orally. In June 1977 the FA, Football League and Professional Footballers' Association submitted joint evidence to the Commission.

FOOTBALL TRUST/FOOTBALL GROUNDS IMPROVEMENT TRUST (FGIT)  [no ref. or date]

Administrative history:
The Trusts channel money from the Pools Promoters Association's Spotting-the-Ball competition into football. The FGIT was set up during the passage through Parliament of the Safety of Grounds Act, 1975, with the primary aim of making grants to Football League Clubs for safety work at their grounds. A secondary purpose was the betterment of facilities generally. A growing sense of the problems facing football in the late 1970s encouraged the PPA to set aside more money from the Spotting-the-Ball Competition for wider objectives and at the end of 1979 a new Football Trust was established. 60 percent of its funds were allocated to the FGIT to continue its work and other areas identified for Football Trust support, for example crowd control and non-league and grassroots football. Thompson who was appointed a Trustee in January 1980 was particularly interested in crowd control problems.
