        Subject: doing it

Patrick Collinson's autobiography, History of a History Man, which Keith 
Thomas mentioned in his London Review of Books piece on notetaking, news 
of which I passed on in Humanist 24.226, is actually available online 
from Collinson's web site at Cambridge:

http://www.trin.cam.ac.uk/collinson/.

Thanks to John Lavagnino for the information and to Tamara Lopez for the 
original pointer to the LRB article, which is a treasure to all those 
interested in how scholarship actually gets done.

Collinson's History of a History Man includes a chapter on his time in 
Sydney, at the University of Sydney. How much has changed, in the 
university life in both hemispheres, since the Regius Professor of 
Modern History at Cambridge, now emeritus, spent his time here!

Yours,
WM
