Conrad was a close friend of John Galsworthy, who gave Conrad a personal loan while he was a beginning writer.
Once he had gained entrance into the exclusive world of British literature, Conrad - a genius at networking and charisma - built a star-studded circle of friends around him, and was fond of attending and at times holding literary salon-type gatherings. His fellow writing friends included Henry James, T.E. Lawrence, Bertrand Russell, Stephen Crane, Hugh Walpole, George Berhard Shaw, H.G. Wells, Arnold Bennett, Norman Douglas, Jacob Epstein, Andre Gide, Paul Valery, Maurice Ravel, Saint John Perse, Edith Wharton, and Robert Cunninghame Graham.
Conrad was a friend of anthropologist Bronislaw Malinowski.
Conrad was a friend of literary salon hostess and socialite Ottoline Morrell.
Later in his writing career, Conrad was a friend and mentor of younger author Ford Madox Ford, and collaborated on a number of short stories with him.
Ramsay MacDonald offered Conrad a British knighthood in 1924, which Conrad declined.
