Administrative/Biographical history:

Henry Spencer Moore was born in Castleford, Yorkshire, and educated locally before training as a teacher. After the First World War he studied at the Leeds School of Art and subsequently at the Royal College of Art in London, which enabled him to fulfill his childhood ambition of becoming a sculptor. His work, in a modernist style and much of it on a large scale, was a financial and often also a critical success over several decades. Towards the end of his life he endowed the Henry Moore Foundation, which continues to promote contemporary art.


Scope and content/abstract:

Letter from Henry Spencer Moore of Hoglands, Perry Green, Much Hadham, Hertfordshire to Mr [George] Clark of the University of London, 3 Nov 1961. Supporting the conferment of the title of Reader on Mr V Townsend.
