  • TRER
  • Fondo
  • 1865-1958

The archive contains papers of both Robert Calverley Trevelyan and his wife Elizabeth (née des Amorie van der Hoeven, known as Bessie), though the majority relate to R. C. Trevelyan and comprise personal items 1872-1951, publications 1898-1950, publications 1989-1950, reviews of publications 1898-1953, photographs 1876-1949, family material.

This archive is in the process of being catalogued: the majority of the correspondence has been catalogued at item level, while around fifteen boxes predominantly containing working notebooks and photographs remain; work on these and revisions will follow.

Latin epigram by George Otto Trevelyan, "Ad Cotilum Harroviensum et Oxoniensem, artis dialectæ peritum

Winner of the Browne Medal in 1858, to the set subject "Versat / Saxum sudans nitendo neque proficit hilum" [a quotation from Cicero, "Tusculan Disputations" 1.10, perhaps quoting Ennius' "Annales"]. Addressed to 'Cotilus' [a name used in Martial's epigrams], who was a school-friend of Trevelyan's at Harrow and is now studying at Oxford.

Poem by George Otto Trevelyan, "A Pastoral for the 26th of December"

Poem addressed to A[rthur] Sidgwick, telling the tale of Sidgwick's indigestion on Boxing Day in mock-classical style, with allusions to Latin and Ancient Greek poetry pointed out in notes beside the main text. Alluding to Theocritus, "Idyll" 1.66, it asks where the Muses were when 'Rugby's fairest swain / Arthur lay writhing on the bed of pain'. Arthur's brother [Henry], Tom [Saunders?] Evans, [Charles Henry] Tawney and [Henry Weston] Eve are described as coming to his side, as is [Frederick] 'Temple himself', headmaster of Rugby. Sidgwick says that Trevelyan was wise to warn him, as they parted at Cambridge, about 'want of exercise, and Christmas fare'. Ends with a picture of the 'bard' sitting in Rotten Row, lighting a cheroot and smoothing his hat; he lays 'these poor lines' at the feet of Arthur, for whom his love 'grows every hour / Till it be broad as [Arthur?] Monck, and tall as [Henry?] Bower' [both contemporaries of Sidgwick and Trevelyan at Trinity].

Letter from Sir Charles E. Trevelyan to Miss F[lorence Davenport?] Hill

8 Grosvenor Crescent, S. W. - Agrees with Dr [William Neilson?] Hancock that it is much better to give widows 'any necessary measure of outdoor relief' to enable to 'bring up their children in an united family' rather than the mother being sent to the workhouse and children to workhouse schools; the way in which children are 'separately absorbed into vast orphanages and the mother left to go to the bad without affection or responsibility is lamentable in the extreme'. There should be periodical checks to 'apportion the assistance strictly to the need' as circumstances change, and family members on whose aid the widow has a claim must be 'made to contribute'. Requests that she asks Dr Hancock to send him fifty copies of his 'Slip' [?], so Trevelyan can 'raise the discussion' in the council; will send Hancock a postal order in payment. Note in ink at top right [in Miss Hill's hand?] 'Out-relief to Widows. Sir C. E. Trevelyan'. Label on scrapbook page below pasted-in letter: 'Sir Charles Trevelyan K.C.B. Governor of Madras 1859-60'. 'Donor 'recorded in ink at the bottom of the page as being 'Mr Henry Allen who received it from' [last four words scribbled over].

Thanks 'Aunt Meggie' for the letter and flowers; will put some in the schoolroom and some in the drawing room.

Notebook with draft of "Maya" by R. C. Trevelyan

Recto of front endpaper bears, in the hand of the young R. C. Trevelyan, "History of Cogiliac"; the verso begins "Chapter I" with a summary of the contents followed by the first lines of the main text; the next page seems to have a sketch map of Trevelyan's imaginary island, but there is nothing further of this work in the book.

From the other end of the book is written out a later verse drama, first entitled "Septimius" [44v-39r]; this title is crossed out and "Maya" substituted. Poem is a verse dialogue between Cinna and Septimius. A translation by Trevelyan of Catullus XLV, in which Septimius and his lover Acme appear, follows. ["Maya" appeared in "Beelzebub and Other Poems", published in 1935, see e.g. 16/181].
