Correspondence of Morison, 1913-1967

Reference Code: GBR/0012/MS Add.9812/D

Scope and Contents

Morison's letters were generally dictated to his secretary and typed with a carbon copy. For the most part, it is these carbon copies that make up his outgoing correspondence in this series. (Where his original letters or photocopies of them are included, this fact is noted.) Letters to and from Morison are interfiled in one chronological sequence. Some short compositions by a particular correspondent are included in this series alongside that person's correspondence.

Immediate Source of Acquisition

After Morison's death some of his original letters (mostly photocopies) were contributed to the collection by their recipients through Nicolas Barker. A few of these have Barker's annotations or other accompanying notes.

Related Materials

Morison's original letters to Beatrice Warde, S. H. Steinberg, Ellic Howe, and Oliver Simon, previously put into this series of correspondence, have been removed to the papers of the people to whom they originally belonged. Carbon copies of many of these letters will of course be found here.
