Papers of Henry Elford Luxmoore
King's Scholar 1852-1859; Assistant Master 1864.3-1908.1; House Master (Baldwin's Bec) 1872 - 1902; Master-in-College 1867 - 1871. A King's Scholar from 1852 to 1859, Luxmoore went on to King's College Cambridge and returned to Eton in 1864 as an assistant master. He was hugely influential, and Provost James was among the many pupils who maintained a long and affectionate relationship with him. He took a particular interest in Eton's ancient buildings. The magnificent garden he created after his retirement in 1908 was after his death taken over by the College. He was involved in local Eton affairs, including the freeing of Windsor Bridge from tolls, and resisted such innovations as the School Laundry because he felt it wrong to deprive local tradesmen of College business.
[1906 - 1926]
These letters were discovered unprovenanced in the library stacks. As with all his letters, they have no year date, and often no date at all.
Letters of his to Provosts and Vice-Provosts survive in the papers of their recipients.
