ROB

Robinson Collection (1752-1944, mostly 1815-1944)

Capt. Vivian Dering Vandeleur Robinson (in adult life he only used Vandeleur Robinson) (1902-1990) was the son of an army colonel and was briefly a military cadet himself before leaving to study history at Emmanuel College, Cambridge. He was active during the inter war period within the League of Nations Union and possibly spent some time living in Czechoslovakia. He was the author of several books on the Balkans as well as a number of plays. He became a captain in the army during the Second World War and was probably involved in political intelligence work.
