MC:PR35/2/2C Letters from Arthur Giles Daubeny
MC:PR35/2/2C/1-3 Oct 1951 – Sept 1956
Three letters to Boase from Arthur Giles Daubeny (C.1879–83), address, 8 Norlands, Herne Bay, Kent. The letters are almost identical in content and contain his reminiscences of life at Magdalen. He includes anecdotes from the late 19th century and also discusses the many connections his family had with the College. Daubeny was the great-nephew of Dr. Charles Daubeny and was born on September 11th, 1861, which helps to date the letters. MC:PR35/2/2C/1 (6pp) has no means to date it, MC:PR35/2/2C/2 (2pp) is dated October 19th, 1951 (he mentions that he is 90) and MC:PR35/2/2C/3 (1p) is dated September 11th, 1956 (it was written on his 95th birthday).
