Subject: RE: Eskimo Republic Political Song Book
Quite a few poets in the 30s and 40s took Scottish pseudonyms: Jimmy Miller became Ewan McColl, Christopher Murray Grieve became Huch McDiarmid and Morrris Blythman chose Thurso Berwick so there was an added reason for Morris to choose such a soubriquet. Also, if the truth be known, Morris was born in England.
