The author attended the Ivy League Dartmouth College in Hanover, New Hampshire, during the years 1922-1924. During that time he got free lodging in the house of Professor David Lambuth, Head of the English Department, in return for acting as a butler and making himself useful about the house. This brought him into close daily contact with Myrtle Lambuth, the Professor’s wife, with the hilarious results recounted in this memoir written as a novel. The Lambuths are called ‘the Ramsons’ in the book, and although the famous people appearing in the story are all given their real names, all the Dartmouth personalities are given false names. Until now it has remained a mystery at Dartmouth as to who the ‘Ramsons’ and the others really were. At last the book can be published with their identities made clear, even though their fictional names are retained within the story itself.
