John Squire:
Sir John Collings Squire (1884 –1958) was Editor and founder of The London Mercury. He established himself as a talker, drinker, habitué of clubs, and man about town. His championship of English cheeses reflected a lifelong love of all things rural and traditional. All these were threatened by modern life and Squire fought for their preservation in verse and prose. The cheese board was a battleground in miniature. His homage to English cheese also reflected his desire not to take the snobbery of French gastronomy too seriously.
