Found in the Archive

Unpacking and cataloguing a new collection is always a voyage of discovery.  When you take in boxes of archive papers you know roughly what subjects you hope it will cover, but there are always unexpected gems.

Kenyon Wright’s archive is no exception and amongst the papers there are personal diaries, photographs and reflections on his life.  This morning I have come across personal notes reflecting on a visit to Auschwitz, his father’s driving licence and an ink stamp with his signature alongside papers from the Constitutional Steering Group.  Who knows what this afternoon’s rummaging will uncover???
