About Warren Lewis

Warren Hamilton Lewis (16 June 1895 – 9 April 1973) was an Irish historian and officer in the British Army, best known as the elder brother of the author and professor C. S. Lewis.

Warren Lewis was a supply officer with the Royal Army Service Corps of the British Army during and after the First World War.

After retiring in 1932 to live with his brother in Oxford, he was one of the founding members of the "Inklings", an informal Oxford literary society.

He wrote on French history, and served as his brother's secretary for the later years of C. S. Lewis's life.

Early life

C. S. Lewis referred to his older brother Warren ("Warnie") as "my dearest and closest friend". The lifelong friendship was formed as the boys played together in their home Little Lea, on the outskirts of Belfast, writing and illustrating stories for their created world called "Boxen" (a combination of India and a previous incarnation called "Animal-Land"). In 1908, their mother died from cancer and as their father mourned her, C. S. ("Jack") and Warren Lewis had only each other for comfort and support. Soon after their mother's death, Jack was sent across the North Channel to join Warren at an English boarding school named Wynyard in Watford, Hertfordshire, just northwest of London, where they both endured a harsh headmaster named Robert Capron. Warren had been taken there by his mother Flora on 10 May 1905. In 1909, Warren transferred to Malvern College in Worcestershire and was followed there by his brother a few years later. Warren completed his education at Malvern in 1913.

Personal life

Warren Lewis renewed his Christian faith beginning in May 1931. He was a frequent participant in weekly meetings of the Inklings and recorded comments about them in many of his diary entries. During the 1930s, the Lewis brothers undertook eight annual walking tours of as many as 50 miles (80 km), which Warren years later recalled with fondness, saying, "And jolly good fun they were too."

According to C. S. Lewis's letters to Arthur Greeves, Warren Lewis was an alcoholic.

Warren Lewis was buried in the churchyard of Holy Trinity Church, Headington, Oxford, where he is interred in his brother's grave.
