Griffith (Griff) Campbell Maclaurin, a new Zealander who had studied Maths at Cambridge, opened a left wing (Communist Party) bookshop. He later joined the International Brigade during the Spanish Civil War and was killed in action in Madrid (defending the Philosophy Faculty at the university) in November 1936.  The bookshop moved to 1 Rose Crescent.
