Gisèle van Waterschoot van der Gracht was an extraordinary Dutch artists who lived on the Herengracht, in the center of Amsterdam. During the War she remained in The Netherlands and sheltered a number of Jewish friends, among them the 16-year old Claus Victor Bock. Afterwards she founded the Castrum Peregrini, a literary magazine. Its title was inspired by the Crusader Castle in the Holy Land which was never conquered, a reference to what had happened during the War. Her work as an artist includes innumerable wonderful paintings, stained glass windows, and tapestries. Her portraits of friends are particularly noteworthy. The one shown here is a self-portrait.

This famous Public School got its Royal Charter from Queen Elizabeth in 1571. There appears to have been a school there much earlier, however, and the very first mention of the place in historical records was in 767. Interestingly, there is an extant document from the time of Henry II (r. 1154-89) which speaks of three principal schools in the London area, which may have included Harrow, for “the exercises of the pupils both intellectual and athletic,” although by then it was admitted that “cockfighting on Shrove Thuesdays be a thing of the distant past, and attendance at ‘bear-fights, bull-fights, and tournaments’ be modified to Christmas visits to the pantomime...” It seems, though, that from an early time privileged boys were educated in logic and philosophy, and in Latin which was the requisite language for further studies at university. The most famous old Harrovian was, of course, Lord Byron, and here are included a number of poems by him.
