Immediate Source of Acquisition
In addition to those letters to Rupert Brooke which remained among his papers, both Edward Marsh and Geoffrey Keynes solicited his letters-out from friends and acquaintances for their publishing projects from the 1920s onwards. All items in this series are the property of the Brooke Trustees and have been deposited at King's College, Cambridge.
