I would like to thank my tutors at the University of Leeds, Dr Hugh Cecil and Dr Richard Whiting, for their continued advice, support and generosity when completing my initial PhD.
I would also like to thank the staff at all the archives and libraries I visited during the course of my research, particularly Peter Liddle and his staff at the Liddle Collection in Leeds for putting up with me, and the staff at the William Ready Division of Archives and Research Collection at McMaster University, Hamilton, Ontario for making me feel welcome when I was far from home.
And last, but certainly not least, I would like to thank my parents for their unwavering support over the years.
This book is dedicated to Frances Partridge, who kindly took the time to recall friends, places and incidents from her remarkable life.
