This article publishes for the first time a selection of letters written to Mr Samuel Whiteley by William Smail, Theodore Haarhoff, Kenneth White, and Henry Tillyard, between 1923 and 1971. These letters were preserved among the papers and books donated by Whiteley to the Classics department at the University of KwaZulu-Natal (then the University of Natal), in Durban. The letters are set in their historical context and analysed. They illuminate the history of Classics in mid-20th-century South Africa in a very personal way.
