Example text

Robertson duly redrafted his dissertation and it was successfully resubmitted in August 1914 (this time with Edwin Cannan and H. S. Foxwell as referees). He thus became a fellow of Trinity and was to remain so, with a five-year break, until his death. His election was reported in The Times of 13 October 1914. He was admitted a fellow in uniform, with sword, for by this time Robertson was in the army. While the peaceful, scholarly issue of his dissertation was being resolved, Europe had erupted into war.

Johnson has depicted him as a man virtually incapacitated by shyness Oohnson and Johnson, 1978: pp. 136, 138-139) and while this might be dismissed as a (culpable) misreading of the evidence by someone who regarded Robertson as not wholly serious, even Stanley Dennison, Robertson's confidant, has found it surprising that 'someone who was normally so reserved' should have been a 'keen and accomplished actor' (Dennison, 1992b: p. 18). There are several possible explanations for the apparent discrepancy, but given that many of the comments relate to the latter part of his life, might this not in reality be the outcome of the realignment of Robertson's public self with his private self?

He had, of course, been brought up in a strongly Christian household. His father was in Holy Orders and gave clear theological and moral guidance. His mother, who revered her husband, in the years following his death assumed responsibility for the task. She urged on Dennis the Reverend james's precept regarding the privilege of loving and serving God and seemed to hint - though we cannot be sure - that this might include a call to the ordained ministry. In any event, in April190S Dennis was duly confirmed in the presence of his ecstatic mother in College Chapel.
