The following is the response of Allen Walker Read, who was "on the scene" when the events took place. He went to the University of Chicago for the summer session of 1927, where he took the dictionary course usually taught by Sir William Craigie, but that summer by James Root Hulbert.

Onions, taught another year, 1931-32, at the University of Missouri, living next door to his revered mentor Robert L Ramsay, and in the autumn of 1932 returned to the University of Chicago at the invitation of Sir William to work on the DAE. In 1934 he was appointed Assistant Editor, along with M. M. Mathews. The following letters were written without thought of publication, but
