Subject files in A-Z order, 1942-1975

Identifier: Coll-41/10

Scope and Contents

These files chiefly look to have been collated by Waddington as 'research files' on a particular topic. It would appear that Waddington collected various magazine articles and press cuttings on certain subjects of interest to him or upon which he was writing or lecturing. Many files also contain correspondence relevant to the related research topics, event, lecture and so forth.

Most of the files of correspondence contain original letters from correspondents, as well as manuscript or carbon copies of Waddington's responses.

The files appear to have been kept in the same order as in Waddington's own filing system, which can be verified by examining the filing list of Anne Brown, Waddington's secretary, at Coll-41/6/10. Many of the files are given general names, and appear to be a collection of research materials gathered under a particular topic, while others are more specific. It was decided to retain the original titles and alphabetical sequence of the files, with more specific information as to their contents also being appended here.
