    Notes 
    • Barbara Crump, the librarian, was a frumpish, cantankerous, intimidating old women who looked rather like Margaret Rutherford - and whom we were absolutely crazy about. From time to time she invited us to her ramshackle, marvelous house just outside the school grounds, where she would regale us with cups of hot chocolate or fresh peaches from Italy. Habitues of her literary salon sometimes showed up when we were there, and so we would have the thrill of meeting people like C. Day Lewis (whose son Daniel would later become one of the more visible graduates of the school), and Malcolm Muggeridge, whose wife had been a girl at Bedales. [Michael Fine Old Books, essay in AB Bookman's Weekly, 1991]
    • Interested in the family history. Wrote useful letter 14 Jul 1961 to Cecil Francis Tatham, her 2nd cousin.
