Detail showing Ted Hughes (third row, second from left), Brian Cox (third row, fourth from left), and Sir Sidney Castle Roberts (first row, far right).
This recent acquisition came from an estate sale in the western Massachusetts village of Lithia, at the home of a former reference librarian and graduate of Pembroke College, Cambridge, whose classmates are pictured in the photograph but who is not pictured because, as he wrote on the back, “I had sailed for U.S. shortly before ‘commencement’”. He did, however, note the location of several famous classmates, including Ted Hughes, the academic, and poet, Brian Cox. Also present is Sir Sidney Castle Roberts, Master of Pembroke and President of the Sherlock Holmes Society of London.
