The Oxford University Gazette (No. 3192) announced that the lecture was to be delayed until Michaelmas term, and it was ultimately delivered in Hilary term of 1965, when Gluckman delivered the lectures for both 1964 and 1965. He discusses these events in his introduction to his edited collection The allocation of responsibility (1972).
