Dear Professor Tsay
I can confirm that LSE has made it very clear that the thesis was submitted properly and that the degree could not have been awarded without it.
Due to the current interest, we have been given a facsimile copy of President Tsai’s thesis and it should be available in our special collections reading room by next week at the latest.
Copyright statements on all our theses from that period make it clear that any quoting or reproduction need written permission from the author – we have therefore taken the decision to restrict any copying of the thesis unless permission has been given in advance.
I hope this helps
