I think it useful to note that wikipedia is not reliable. It is free to
anyone to post anything. They can't even get Hugh MacDiarmid's name
right, so I would not count on the information there.

If anyone has any information at all about TSE's contacts with the

most grateful to hear from them.
Every 'jumped-ship' to the Roman Catholic faith in 1972 and spent the
31 years of his life at Oscott Seminary in Birmingham and his work and
interest in Little Gidding and Ferrar is said to have inspired that

luminaries and the like must have been immense both in volume and
significance, little now seems to remain. Ackroyd mentions Kelham very

2003, aged 94.
