Dear Nuffield College, Oxford,
I am carrying out research for a book about the late Robin Farquharson (1930-1973) a South African who formerly held an academic position at your college. I am looking to find as much information as possible about Robin, from his general records in the college archives to further contacts who may have known him and may wish to contribute to my book.
I have already spoken briefly with a former colleague of Robin's, David Butler, who was most helpful.
Any information you might be able to provide, even if it is only background material would be of great help.
I am away until Tuesday 31 January. If you have an urgent query please contact the Lodge on 01865 278500.
