Found in 3 Collections and/or Records:
Interviews with [Richard] Denis Kelly, former archivist (1947) and research assistant (1948-57) to Winston Churchill. Two interviews, one conducted by Correlli Barnett (1979) at Kelly's flat, one conducted by Pat Ackerman (1986) at Churchill College.
From left to right: Chips Gemmell, Lettice Shillingford, Denis Kelly and Evan Davies.
The papers mainly consist of Kelly's recollections of his work for Churchill, in the form of memoirs and other papers, taped interviews, and in correspondence, particularly with Churchill's official biographer, Sir Martin Gilbert. There is also a small amount of correspondence dating back to Kelly's time as Churchill's literary assistant and two volumes of Winston Churchill's, "The Second World War" heavily annotated by Kelly, presumably for his own abridged version of these volumes.
