Scope and Contents
Almost all Morison's books and papers were destroyed by enemy bombs on 10/11 May 1941. This collection therefore consists chiefly of papers he accumulated after that date, although some earlier papers have come into the collection from other sources.
Conditions Governing Access
Unless restrictions apply, the collection is open for consultation by researchers using the Manuscripts Reading Room at Cambridge University Library.

Information about opening hours and obtaining a Cambridge University Library reader's ticket is available from the Library's website (www.lib.cam.ac.uk).

McKitterick, 'Typographers tallied: the origin and growth of the Stanley Morison Room, Cambridge University Library', Matrix 5 (1985), 15-22.
