Mostly Warren

November 28, 2014
The additional information comes from December 1931 through February 1932, mostly about Warren's service in China. He mentions some letters he writes to Jack and Minto and a couple of letters he receives from Minto. Nothing remarkable in this addition. Another three pages and about 3,000 more words. The total for this resource is now more than 800 pages and nearly 450,000 words. It replaces the last update from November 14.
 

More Formatting

November 15, 2014
In addition to adding Bruce Johnson's information about Lewis's speaking and preaching for the RAF, I have made some fairly significant changes in format. Every year is now listed in the following format: “The Year 1943,” “The Year 1954,” etc. Every month is now listed in this format: “January 1941.” Therefore, searches for a specific month or year can more easily be done if you enter the right terms.

1931; Formatting

November 9, 2014
This document is now over 445,000 words long, almost 9,000 more than the previous posting. Almost all of that addition is from the year 1931, the year of Jack's conversion to Christianity, and ending with the last day of November. This is largely the result of more information from Warren's diaries, which includes a fair amount about Jack, since Warren was home during much of this time. The new information from 1931 contains a few minor valuable insights, but nothing earth-shaking. Perhaps th...

Stained Glass Window

October 16, 2014
This is a minor update, about a thousand words, two pages, and ten footnotes longer than the last one. Some of the changes are significant, especially those drawn from Warren Lewis's diary for 1931. There are seven more days in 1931 that have entries posted, three of them for the weekend of June 13-15, Saturday to Monday. These are days shortly after Jack's conversion to theism and two months after Warren's May 9 return to the Christian faith. That weekend Warren rode his motorcycle to the Ki...

Warren Lewis, Oxford, and Bulford

September 4, 2014
This version is about 9,000 words longer than the previous one, largely because of additional material in 1930 through about half of the month of May. But don't confuse size (more words) with quality. We have more information, but most of it is relatively unhelpful. It's mostly about Warren, but for the latter part of this time he is in Oxford, having completed a term in Shanghai and taken a ship home, the Tai Yin. That ship traveled through the Panama Canal to New York, where it docked. Warr...

Colin Duriez

August 26, 2014
This update includes a few insights from the biography of Lewis by Colin Duriez, C. S. Lewis: A Biography of Friendship, released in 2013. I have also included the underlining of the names of Jack and Warren in each date where either one or both occur, so the reader can quickly tell if there is something about Jack in that date, or if the entry is just about Warren. Since Warren kept extensive diaries through the years, this chronology has a good deal about him. Given the interest of most peo...

Warren Lewis

August 13, 2014
This update includes a lot more information about Warren Lewis and very little information about Jack Lewis, apart from the mention of a postcard or two that Warren sent to his brother. The departure from Shanghai and the ensuing travel by ship through the Pacific Ocean by way of San Francisco (even past Alcatraz to Pier 41) and through the Panama Canal are included in this edition, mostly confined to the first few months of 1930. Part of its importance is in placing Warren some distance from...

Arthur Greeves

July 17, 2014
Having just worked through most of the diaries of Arthur Greeves, I have added a lot of information about Arthur's relationship with Jack (mostly letter-writing) in 1917, 1918, and 1922. There is not much else, except that I also added an item or two that Bruce Johnson sent me and I ran the spell-check on this 667-page document. Needless to say, there is a lot more information than last time (by more than 3,000 words), including some corrections. This database is better than ever, more compre...

The Stella Aldwinckle Papers

July 14, 2014
This update adds another 13,000 words to this 655-page document, which has nearly 1,900 footnotes and over 415,000 words. It contains a great deal more information about the meetings of the Socratic Club, especially between 1942 and 1955. In many cases, it includes some key ideas presented in papers read to the Socratic Club as well as responses by various people, including those by C. S. Lewis, Austin Farrer, E. L. Mascall, and others. Some of those who attended, who are known to have had co...

The Socratic Club

July 8, 2014
This posting takes us over the 400,000 word mark with 633 pages and nearly 1,700 footnotes. I have added a lot about Warren Lewis in the late 1920s, most of it rather irrelevant, but I have also added a lot of information about the Socratic Club, based on the records of the attendance book that Stella Aldwinckle kept, including the first two years after Lewis was no longer its president (1955 and 1956) because of his new position at Cambridge University. In addition, I discovered a little jew...
