About this Item: Two items from his addresses: 47 Norfolk Road and 46 Sutherland Road Brighton East Sussex. Wimbledon House 36 Sussex Square Hove Sussex. Between and 1908, 1889. 65 items of varying size, on pieces of card and paper. The collection is in good condition, with light signs of age and wear. As his obituary in The Times (5 August 1927) describes, before embarking on his journalistic career, Cornford trained as an architect. He was articled for three years from 1884 to Sir John William Simpson (1858-1933), and then studied at the Royal Academy in 1888. He then served briefly as assistant, first to Thomas Verity (1837-1891), and then to F. S. Waller and F. W. Waller, before qualifying as an architect in 1889, and ARIBA the following year. The present collection of designs, showing the strong influence of the arts and crafts movement, is of particular interest for the items it contains relating to Wimbledon House girls' school, the future Roedean School. In 1898 Cornford would marry the school's games mistress Christabel Lawrence, sister of the its three founders Penelope, Dorothy and Millicent Lawrence (see their joint entry in the Oxford DNB). ONE: Design in ink on card of bookplate for his future wife Christabel Lawrence, signed 'LCC'. In envelope with inscription: 'Book Plate | Miss C. Lawrence.' Also an ink design for a calling card: 'Miss Lawrence | Presented by | Wimbledon House C.C. | 1893.' With pencil inscription (by her?): 'Something of this kind I want please soon as possible', with note expanding 'C. C.' to 'Cricket Club'. TWO: 34pp. of designs for monograms, in pencil and ink, on 30 pieces of paper and card. One on letterhead of 'CL [ Christabel Lawrence ] | Wimbledon House, | 36, Sussex Square, | Brighton.' These include ones captioned 'Wimbledon House Cricket Club | 1891.' and 'The | Wimbledon House Swimming Club. | Nov. 8. 895.' Two carry the same annotation, in a tiny stylized hand: 'Note to Die Cutter | Drawing to be followed with the utmost exactitude.' The first is signed 'LCC Dec 5 1892' and the second (for Margaret Lawrence) 'LCC Oct 31 1892'. The second carries the additional notes: 'CT enlarged to shew intentions clearly.' and 'Copy slightly improved to Mrs. L Nov 7 1892'. Also present are leaves of designs for monograms for 'Miss Beatrice E. Greg | Nov 1891', 'Miss Ethel Jane Reed | Nov 891', 'Ernest Arthur Jelf. | May 1892', 'Margaret Lawrence | Nov. 1892', 'Maria B. Ward | Nov. 1894', 'Marjorie M. Monkhouse | Decr. 1898', 'C. M. de la G. C. | March 10 1892' and 'C. H. E. A. | March 8 1908'. One is on the reverse of a printed handbill from the Royal Academy Students' Club, London, 8 October 1892. THREE: Five pieces of paper and card, with eight designs for the masthead and device of 'The Zenana Magazine'. One filled-in in colour.

About this Item: Rose Mary [Woods] (1917-2005) was Nixon's private secretary from 1951 until the end of his political career in 1974, and she became a close family friend. She was fiercely loyal, and more - as the Washington Post obituary put it, 'Miss Woods was Nixon's gatekeeper. Reporters said she controlled who could see her boss - and punished those she deemed critical'. The New York Times (25 December 2005) takes up the baton: 'Woods's outsize allegiance burst the confines of the Oval Office when, after a career spent discreetly in the background, she achieved precisely 18 [and a half] minutes of hideous, disfiguring fame. For a woman with a reputation for probity, Woods's implausible explanation of the erasure of a portion of a key Watergate tape was like a public self-immolation . . . Woods made the cover of "Time" in December 1973 not as a supremely competent woman behind the throne, let alone the first female chief of staff, but as the hapless executive secretary of a pathetic and criminal cover-up'.
