Biographical history

C.T. Atkinson held the rank of Captain with the Oxford University Officers Training Corps, and served in the Seventh Division which was created in the autumn of 1914, and ceased to exist in the winter of 1918, after its demobilization in December. Its units were assembled from home stations, from Gibralter, Malta, Egypt and included the regulars remaining in England after the departure for France of the Sixth Division in 1907. In 1926, C.T. Atkinson undertook the writing of the history of the Seventh Division, which was published in 1927, under the title The Seventh Division 1914-1918. by John Murray.

Custodial history

Scope and content

The fonds consists six letters to C.T. Atkinson, 1926-1930, regarding the publication of his book. There is one page of holograph notes, perhaps by a reviewer, news clippings of book reviews, and a publisher's circular for 1926 which does not list Atkinson's book. There are also two post cards.
