    G. Bernard Shaw letter to G. Carson-Cooling

    ​​The playwright George Bernard Shaw sent this letter to Headmaster George Carson ̵ Cooling on 29 July 1943, highlighting their similar views on education. Shaw’s letter has many corrections in ink, and was typed and signed by him when he was living at Whitehall Court, London. In this wartime letter, Shaw ‘disagrees violently’ with the idea of feeding boys five times a day, and warns against punishment, as ‘it makes the schoolmaster an executioner, and makes mischief a delicious luxury when his back is turned’.​
