The British scholar Michael Millgate was born July 19, 1929, in Southampton, England, and educated at St. Catharine's College, Cambridge (B.A. 1952, M.A. 1956), and the University of Leeds (Ph.D., 1960). Millgate is Professor of English at the University of Toronto and has received fellowships from the Guggenheim Foundation, the Royal Society of Canada, and the Royal Society of Literature. He is the author of critical studies and biographies of Thomas Hardy and William Faulkner.

The British writer, scientist, and public official C. P. (Charles Percy) Snow was born in Leicester, England, on October 15, 1905. He died July 1, 1980 in London. Snow was educated at University College, Leicester (B.S. 1927, M.S. 1928); and Christ's College, Cambridge (Ph.D. in physics, 1930). Snow combined three careers during his lifetime, serving as a Civil Service commissioner (1945-1960) and parliamentary secretary (1964-1966); he was a physicist at Cambridge University (1930-1950); and he wrote novels, plays, and critical essays. Snow’s book The Two Cultures and the Scientific Revolution (1962) was aimed at closing the gap between scientific and literary spheres of thought, and was admired by figures such as John F. Kennedy, but attacked by the critic F.R. Leavis. As a novelist Snow is most well-known for his sequence Strangers and Brothers, which includes The Masters (1951), The New Men (1954), The Affair (1960), Corridors of Power (1964), and Last Things (1970). In 1964 Snow was made a life peer.
