Vice President Lewis

Posted by Joel Heck on Saturday, November 17, 2012
This new version of "Chronologically Lewis" is a major upgrade in five ways. First, it has all of the dates of Lewis' service on the Council (Board of Trustees) at Westcott House, Cambridge. Second, it contains meetings that Lewis attended in 1941 during the year of his Vice Presidency of Magdalen College. Third, from 1950 through 1959, I have added a summary of the topics addressed in the letters that Lewis wrote. This makes the chronology much more useful, rather than just saying, "Jack writes a letter to Rhona Bodle." Eventually, I plan to do this for all of Jack's letters, but this involves reading all three volumes of his letters. Fourth, it corrects a couple of minor errors, such as the date when his Vice Presidency began. Now the chronology has 4259 pages, more than 960 footnotes and over 245,000 words. Fifth, it has some material about his participation in the Martlets during his undergraduate years at University College. More about the Martlets soon. Stay tuned.

I have decided to include belowall of the Spotlights that I have posted thus far, since they are often important, but little known, events in the life of C. S. Lewis. That file appears below, in case some readers have missed some of the previous postings. There are seven postings in that file, and I invite people to submit a candidate for the next posting.

The file that appears below lists all works of C. S. Lewis in chronological order (now 528 in number) in the location where they were first published or delivered (if spoken) as far as I am able to determine. Corrections are welcome. This version, slightly revised and added on May 13, 2020, includes a corrected date for "Transposition" on June 9, 1946.
