Sketches by W.H. Counsell and others for the Cambridge Magazine
Scope and Contents
The Cambridge Magazine was founded by C.K. Ogden in 1912, and edited by him until its closure ten years later. Its content included cartoons and other illustrations of persons, events and trends in Cambridge life. Most of the items listed below were the work of William Henry Counsell (1869-1943) (‘Min’), formerly of Cavendish House and Downing College, headmaster of Morecambe Grammar School 1919-29 and vicar of Ivegill, Cumberland from 1930. There are also two letters from Counsell to Ogden, and five drawings by other artists.
