... between them also some of Catelin Geofroy
Considering, that some silk dealers were active in early Trionfi card sales, that's somehow interesting.Michael Anthony Eardley Dummett was born in London in 1925. His father, George Dummett, was a silk merchant ....
Well, an interesting read ...In September 1939 (just after the onset of World War II) Dummett began his secondary education, as a Scholar at Winchester College. After a compulsory year on the classics ladder, he opted for science, but was “deeply disappointed” by it and switched to history. In 1943 he obtained a history scholarship to Christ Church, Oxford, but now 18 and with the war still on, went into the Royal Artillery instead of Christ Church. He was sent on a six month “short course” in Edinburgh. While there he contacted the University Catholic Chaplaincy and underwent instruction by the Chaplain, Father Ivo Thomas, and was received into the Catholic Church in February 1944. After Basic Training he was transferred to the Intelligence Corps and sent to Bedford for a six month course of training to translate written Japanese, and then to the Wireless Experimental Centre outside Dehli, in which intercepted Japanese wireless message were translated. When the war with Japan ended, Dummett was sent to Malaya as part of Field Security. He wrote recently that “it must have been in Malaya that a passionate hatred of racism was first born in me. I learned of the means by which the British masters of pre-war colonial Malaya had maintained and acted out the myth of white racial superiority”, though Michael Screech remembers Dummett expressing anger about racism already when they were together on the Bedford course and at the Wireless Centre.
Dummett was demobilized in 1947, just in time to go up to Christ Church that year. He felt that after four years in the army he had forgotten much of the history he had learnt, and decided instead to read Philosophy, Politics, and Economics (PPE).
And here's something to hear ... when Dummett met WittgensteinEveryone who knew Dummett has vivid memories of his smoking, which for most of his life he did using a short cigarette holder into which a replaceable filter was fitted, though not initially, to judge by a recollection of him in his army days, tapping the end of his cigarette many times before lighting it, an action so characteristic that it came to be called “dummetting” by those around him.
