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:
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!
