In it, a retired Pomona College professor Thomas Pinney described how Kipling did not get along with the American press, but he was well liked by his neighbors. While living in Vermont from 1892 to 1896, Kipling snow-shoed in winter and went to barn dances. Janet Montefiore, the editor of the Kipling Journal, says Kipling was an ideologist of 19th Century British imperialism, but he was also a wonderful tale teller who was interested in people.

AP’s earlier story is below. Some of the world’s most renowned scholars of Rudyard Kipling are hearing this week about the years he lived in Vermont, penning some of his most famous works far from the Indian subcontinent where he made his name. The British author lived in Dummerston when he wrote “Rikki-Tikki-Tavi,” the story of a mongoose that battled two vicious cobras in far-away India while protecting his human family from harm, said Thomas Pinney, who will give the keynote address Monday at Marlboro College. He lived there from 1892 to 1896, a time when there was rising anti-English sentiment in the United States. Over time, Kipling soured on the United States, although he continued to like many Americans, said Pinney, a retired professor from California’s Pomona College. “So I thought what I would do, since Kipling told us so much about what he thought about Americans, I’d find out what the Americans thought about him, especially the locals in Vermont,” Pinney said. “I thought I’d find a lot of hostile remarks, but it didn’t work that way. It appears they liked him. They were sympathetic and flattered by the presence of a great man.” This Oct. 2, 2013 photo, shows a box belonging to author Rudyard Kipling, which was discovered in a Pinney is among about 60 Kipling scholars from the United Kingdom and the U.S.

It was an unusual intervention by the Privy Council Judicial Committee, which at the height of the British Empire was a very powerful body but still retains important powers now as a last ditch court of appeals. A five-judge panel ruled in favor of Mark Lundy, who was convicted in New Zealand in 2002 after a jury decided he had attacked his wife Christine, 38, and his daughter Amber, 7, with a weapon similar to a tomahawk at the family home. Lundy received a mandatory life sentence and his appeal was dismissed by the New Zealand Court of Appeals later in 2002. He eventually had his lawyers bring the matter before the Privy Council, which had the authority to hear the appeal because New Zealand did not have its own Supreme Court until 2003. Lundy brought the case before the Privy Council committee in November, more than 10 years after losing his initial appeal in New Zealand. His lawyers argued that he suffered a “substantial miscarriage of justice” when he was initially convicted. They argued that the verdict was unreasonable and not supported by the evidence. The appeal was heard by four judges from Britain’s Supreme Court and one senior New Zealand judge. Lundy’s lawyers convinced the judges that fresh evidence should be considered in a new trial. Lundy is now in his mid-50s. The council said he should remain in prison in New Zealand until his bail request can be heard by the High Court there.
