Correspondence and papers on the education and early career of Charles Ryle Fay (1884-1961), economic historian.

Reference Code: GBR/0012/MS Add.7746
Scope and Contents

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.
