Neville Cardus first heard Sir Thomas conduct in Manchester in 1912; in 1931 he met him over a white lady at Salzburg in the company of Lady Cunard. Their association spanned the greater part of this century, their friendship some thirty years, and when in 1958 the question of a biography of Sir Thomas came up, he commented that were it to be written, it would be to Neville Cardus that he would turn.
