Collection of paintings, drawings and a lithograph, mainly of Cambridge. The identity of the artists other than Benson is not known. Clive Forster Cooper (b. 1880), featured in no. 6, was Director of the Museum of Zoology, Cambridge, 1914-1937, and was made Director of the British Museum in 1938.
Correspondence and papers on the education and early career of Charles Ryle Fay (1884-1961), economic historian.
The letters and papers catalogued below were preserved by C. R. Fay's father, who pasted them into an unused copy of Smith's commercial scribbling diary for 1902; Mr Fay adopted a generally chronological arrangement, but does not seem to have felt himself to be bound strictly by this. Many of the documents are addressed to the elder Fay, and the collection can be regarded as being as much the papers of the father as of the son.
Inventory of 1452, transcribed by Henry Bradshaw, 26 folios, including: (fo. 17) H. Bradshaw, 'The University Library in 1582'; (fo. 20) Bradshaw, 'Notes on the organ screen of King's College'. On the flyleaf is a list of contents in hand of John Willis Clark. The versos are blank throughout.
Charles Edward Sayle (1864-1924), fifth son of the Cambridge draper Robert Sayle, was educated at Rugby and New College, Oxford. He joined the staff of Cambridge University Library in 1893, and was Assistant Librarian from 1910 until his death. These letters are mostly short communications, written on postcards, but including Brooke's views on various subjects, literary and otherwise.
Brooke and Fry met as undergraduates at King's (Fry having come up in 1905, a year before Brooke), and continued their friendship after Fry left Cambridge in 1908. The letters form only a portion of those that Fry received from Brooke, others having been given by him to Edward Marsh while the latter was writing the memoir that introduced the collected edition of Brooke's poems published in 1916.
