A letter that shows how the Royal Family found Lionel Logue, the speech therapist depicted in the Oscar-winning film The King’s Speech, has been discovered in the archives of the National Library of Scotland (NLS). (Heraldscotland.com, March 2, 2011)
The letter was addressed to John Murray V, a member of the John Murray publishing dynasty, who lived from 1884 to 1967. John Murray V’s nephew, John “Jock” Murray VI, was successfully treated for a stammer by Mr Logue. It was through Mr Murray’s recommendation to his friend, Lord Stamfordham, that Mr. Logue was introduced to the palace.
