On the occasion of his election in 1932, Rudyard Kipling (1865 1936) presented the college with a manuscript poem entitled To the Companion which celebrated Magdalenes best-known graduate, Samuel Pepys.

After his death, his widow, Caroline Kipling, bequeathed the present collection of manuscript poems - many of them redrafted and corrected, and thus giving insights into Kiplings creative process - to the college. The bound volume comprises some twenty-eight poems in all (including multiple versions of key stanzas of The White Mans Burden), together with a fragment of an unpublished poem entitled The Song of the Engine. Its publication in the Cambridge Library Collection makes the poems available to the scholar, the Kipling enthusiast, and the general reader.
