DescriptionDuring the 1920s Charles Masterman often stayed for prolonged periods on the Isle of Wight where he felt he could devote himself to his writing. In the summer months he participated in the activities organised by Yellow Sands camps, a summer school for boys run by Bembridge School. At these camps he met and befriended a number of boys with whom he kept in contact and who kept up a correspondence with Masterman, sometimes for many years afterwards. Masterman's personal correspondence consists mainly of letters from his wife, Lucy, to him on the Isle of Wight and letters from the school boys he met there. Also included are letters from parents of some of these boys, a letter from Masterman's mother and a letter from his friend Frances Chesterton.
