Social anthropologist Geoffrey Gorer (1905–85) spent a decade studying tribal culture before turning his attention to the mores of the Americans, the Russians and, in particular, his fellow breed the English. His wide-ranging career also included a long association with his American peer Margaret Mead. The Archive of Gorer’s work represents every phase of his constantly evolving enthusiasms and includes much to complement the studies undertaken by Mass-Observation.
