This is the most recent photograph of Rudyard Kipling, who cele-
brates his 70th birthday Dec. 30. The bespectacled youth who came out
of India at the turn of the century with a pocketful of poems and
stories that brought him world fame, has lived as a virtual recluse on his
Sussex estate while his prolific writings have continued to roll up a
vast fortune.
Educators Of Four Countries
Aid Middle English Dictionary

Work Being Financed By
Rockefeller Foundation,
Learned Societies
Members of 60 American colleges
and universities, and institutions in
Canada, England and Sweden, num-
bering 110 people in all, have added to
the words and quotations which are
being collected by a staff of 19 people
who are compiling a dictionary of
Middle English words under the ed-
itorship of Prof. Thomas A. Knott of
the English department.j
The work is being carried on here
as part of a program originally pro-
posed by the directors of the Oxford
Dictionary, and has been financed by
the American Council of Learned So-
cieties and the Rockefeller Founda-
Oxford University completed a dic-
tionary of the English language in
1928 after working on it since 1856.
It was found, however, that many
words had been omitted because of
the great span of time which that
work attempted to cover. American
universities were consequently so-
licited to undertake classification of
relatively short periods. The Uni-
versity of Chicago is compiling a dic-
tionary of American English while
Michigan is concentrating on the 375
years between 1100 and 1475.
According to Professor Knott, quo-

tations illustrating uses and mean-
ings of words are being taken from
every known manuscript of the per-
iod. Writings which appeared before
the advent of printing in England are
also included.
There have been 40,000 words and
more than 990,000 quotations filed
since the dictionary wasbegun in
1930 under{ the late Prof. Samuel
Moore. Professor Knott, who took
over the position of editor when Pro-
fessor Moore died, said the work
would not be completed until 1942.
Because the University does not
possess original manuscripts, photo-
graphs and prints of originals owned
by other institutions are being used
by readers who select from them ex-
pressions which will be used in the
