A FOOTNOTE to the splendidly appreciative obituaries of Denys Harding (by Monica Lawlor and Ian McKillop, 3 May), writes K. A. G. Murray. For many years before and after his retirement he was on the Panel of Psychologists at the Civil Service Selection Board. Amidst the many gifted colleagues whom that board attracted, Denys Harding made a unique contribution with his high professional competence and flair, in combination with the wisdom from the range of his cultural sympathies. This was made the more helpful to the Civil Service Commission and to its candidates because of an unforced modesty and niceness.
