Sir Robert Swancutt

In his autobiography, Blarin recalled meeting a man named Sir Robert Swancutt during his dictionary-purchasing trip to the University of Oxford. In an airport terminal, Blarin remembered, Robert seemed very anxious and fidgety.
Taking his seat in the plane, Blarin noticed Robert was sitting next to him. Once aloft, Blarin spoke: “You seemed pretty nervous back there on the ground. You look calm now.”
Reclining in his seat, Robert responded: “Now that we’re in the air I’m fine. You see, I have a fear of not flying.”
