The Surgeon of Crowthorne : A Tale of Murder, Madness and the Oxford English Dictionary

One of the keenest volunteers was a W C Minor who astonished everyone by refusing to come to Oxford to receive his congratulations. In the end, James Murray, the OED's editor, went to Crowthorne in Berkshire to meet him.
