Notes, topics or text 

"I knew Neville well from the time when he was a candidate for a fellowship until I left Trinity in 1916. He and I took the same unpopular view of the First World War and this together with my being an examiner for a fellowship brought us together.... The fact that he was a conscientious objector was an obstacle, throughout his life, to academic advancement in spite of his brilliance as many educational authorities think that a man is not fit to teach the young if he dislikes having them slaughtered."
