British archeologist John Pendlebury may have provided some inspiration for the character of William Harper Littlejohn.  He was blind in one eye but went on to become a notable college athlete at Cambridge where he excelled in the high jump as well as running. He wore a monocle over his glass eye while jumping and was known as the “monocle jumper.”
