Letters from A. E. Housman to W. H. Semple

This collection contains twenty-eight letters from A. E. Housman to W. H. Semple, together with two related letters by A. F. Scholfield, the University Librarian—one to Semple and one to Housman—and an unrelated memorandum in Semple's hand. The correspondence begins at the time when Semple was a research student at Cambridge and Housman was his supervisor. According to Graves (A. E. Housman: The Scholar-Poet), Semple was the only research student Housman ever supervised.
