SELECTED LETTERS TO SAMUEL WHITELEY BY SOUTH AFRICAN CLASSICISTS

J Hilton

Abstract


This article publishes for the first time a selection of letters written to
Mr Samuel Whiteley by William Smail, Theodore Haarhoff,
Kenneth White, and Henry Tillyard, between 1923 and 1971. These
letters were preserved among the papers and books donated by
Whiteley to the Classics department at the University of KwaZulu-
Natal (then the University of Natal), in Durban. The letters are set in
their historical context and analysed. They illuminate the history of
Classics in mid-20th-century South Africa in a very personal way.
