All the biographical information about Blunt was not then and is not now available, since the subject thereof had decreed by his will that his private memoirs should not be accessible to the public until 1952. Although knowledge of Blunt's life is not yet complete, articles and reviews in American and English periodicals have to some extent acquainted readers with his work.
