I'm a big fan of Elmsleys work, and my favorite books on magic are the wonderful Collected Works of Alex Elmsley by Stephan Minch.
Anyway, i always knew he went to Cambridge University, but i didn't know anything about Cambridge until i met my girlfriend who studied at Kings College. I didn't even know Cambridge had colleges!
I became curious as to which college Elmsley studied at.
Searching for "Alex Elmsley College" returned nothing. so i searched for "Alex Elmsley Kings College" which was a good guess.
I found kings annual report from 2009 which contains an obituary for Elmsley, which i found to be an interesting read.
I thought i would share with you since i think many other people would be interested to read this. So please see the web address below
its about half way through the pdf. so just click control and f and then type in elmsley and click enter. It begins on page 124.
it also contains the obituary of Christopher Bishop who "shared digs" with Elmsley.
