On appointment as US ambassador to the United Kingdom John Winant called for E. F. Penrose and Edith to join him as foreign service technical advisers on economic and social affairs. Edith continued to work on food issues, but also on international trade, capital movements, migration, and changes in industrial distribution. E. F. Penrose was involved with a network of economists, including Keynes, James Meade, Lionel Robbins, Austin Robinson in London, Harry Dexter White, Morgenthau, and others in the USA on wartime and postwar planning. Edith’s journal of wartorn London conveys the intensity of the time and reveals the development of her own thinking through prolific reading and thoughtful reflection on the conversations and preoccupations of those she came into contact with, including many prominent economists, diplomats, journalists, and politicians; particularly the varying visions of the postwar world.

Keywords:   John Winant, postwar planning, wartorn London, Keynes, postwar economics
