Writing about the misericords in St. Katharine’s made me want to know more about M.D. Anderson, who published a King Penguin on misericords, following her earlier Animal Carvings in English Churches. In looking her up, I saw her wrongly described as a man. In fact, she was the daughter of a Master of Caius and married Trenchard Cox, who succeeded the alcoholic Leigh Ashton as Director of the V&A in 1955, supposedly only to keep the seat warm for John Pope-Hennessy, who patronised him. There must be people who remember her, as well as Cox, who according to his obituary, resembled Lewis Carroll’s Dormouse. Maybe she was similarly self-effacing.
