Sadleir was born on December 25, 1888 in Oxford, England; his father was Sir Michael Sadler, Master of University College, Oxford (whose library on education UCLA acquired in 1948); the younger Michael changed the spelling of his name to avoid being confused with his father; attended Balliol College, Oxford; worked in the War Intelligence Dept. during World War I; in 1919 he was a member of the British delegation to the Versailles Peace Conference, and for a brief period, was a member of the Secretariat of the League of Nations; became a collector of first editions of Victorian fiction, a publisher with Constable, and an author; publications include Fanny by gaslight (1940); he died in December 1957 in London.
