News of the May passing of British Columbia-born academic and writer S. P. Rosenbaum was shared at the Woolf conference in Saskatoon, and Melba Cuddy-Keane offered a moving remembrance of him, according to Vara Neverow. Mr. Rosenbaum died at the age of 83 in Halifax, Nova Scotia.

His credentials are many, but in Woolf circles Mr. Rosenbaum is best known for his work on the literary history of the Bloomsbury Group. Among these works are:

  • Editing The Bloomsbury Group: A Collection of Memoirs, Commentary and Criticism (1975, revised and updated in 1995)
  • Three volumes tracing the literary history of Old Bloomsbury from the 1880s to 1914: Victorian Bloomsbury (1994), Edwardian Bloomsbury (1994) and Georgian Bloomsbury (2003)
  • Aspects of Bloomsbury (1998)
  • The discovery and editing of the manuscript of Virginia Woolf’s A Room of One’s Own (1992)
  • Collecting Woolf’s published and unpublished memoirs in The Platform of Time: Memoirs of Family and Friends (expanded edition, 2008)

Mr. Rosenbaum’s papers are housed at the E.J. Pratt Library.
