Chapter Summary

David Luscombe went to school in London in the 1940s and 50s and played a leading role in the British Academy in London as Publications Secretary. From 1956 to 1964 he was a student and research fellow at King's College, Cambridge; and from 1957 he was sitting at the feet of David Knowles - from 1959 as a research student under his supervision. He felt that the impact of the personality, the outlook and the achievement of David Knowles was a critical element in his formation. A few years before David came to Sheffield in 1972, Edward Miller had entered a very modest inheritance and greatly enhanced it. Indeed, David's achievement in Sheffield has spread far beyond the bounds of medieval history. We have visited David in his study, among his books, among his colleagues in the University.
