Though one might think of something cozier, too: a snug bug in a rug.
His name was J. T. Boulton—no, not *that* J. T. Boulton. Not James T. Boulton the literary scholar, though perhaps they are related. The fact of the matter is I have very little biographical information on J. T. Boulton, not even what those initials stand for. And everything I do have comes from his own report.
Boulton was a teacher and headmaster in northwest England. He received an M.A. from Cambridge. During the late 1940s, at least, he was at Bamber Bridge Training School, in Lancashire. It was an emergency training school for teachers, with about 350 students taking a one year course, most of them soldiers, and older than the usual student, averaging around 30. He taught French and Spanish. Late in 1952, it seems, he became headmaster of Creighton School, in Carlisle, Cumbria County. Among his students was Hunter Davies, who would become a prolific writer and chronicler of the Beatles.
