    Mr. Hemming. I have an idea for a biography for you: my grandfather, George Palmer Putnam, from G. P. Putnam Sons Publishing and marriages to Dorothy Binney–think Binney and Smith Crayolas– and Amelia Earhart, was an eccentric man of letters and adventure and movies and politics, who remains almost completely mischaracterized. His life was full of unbelievable adventures and odd characters.

      Many thanks David, that’s fascinating. The next two books I’ll be doing are fairly settled, but G. P. Putnam is a fascinating figure and I will bear him in mind as a possible future subject. Did he leave behind many papers?

    In all the writings including your book on Maxwell knight I can find no reference to the fact that he taught Biology at a girls school in Camberley in the 1950’s I have a book signed by him.

      Dear Harriet, many thanks for this. Yes, I’ve heard that he taught Biology at Beaufront School in 1954/55. Were you by any chance in the same class as Victoria Coombes?

    We have been very interested to read your latest book on Max Knight. He was my husbands godfather. My father in law Tom Roberts worked with Max during and after the war. They were good friends. We have several books,photos etc.He was also a magician and came to our family childrens parties. We would love to come to one of your talks and wondered if you have to be a member of the Surrey Heath History society to attend the talk you are giving there on 14th June That seems to be the nearest venue to us.Thanks

      Dear Helen, many thanks for this. How fascinating! I imagine that anyone can attend the talk organised by the Surrey Heath History society, but I’ll check now and email you directly once I’ve heard back from them.
      I look forward to meeting you, and hope you don’t mind me asking you lots of questions.
      With best wishes,
      Henry
