Extent1 box
AbstractThe group contains correspondence of D.H. Lawrence with various individuals.
Access ConditionsUse of originals restricted for preservation reasons; surrogate copies are available. Readers requiring access to the original papers must seek permission in advance.
Admin HistoryThis is an artificial grouping of letters and postcards written by D.H. Lawrence (1885-1930) to various family members, friends and acquaintances. They were brought together when accessioned by the Library. The collection includes some separate series of correspondence with individuals. Lawrence correspondence which naturally belongs within a larger archive group has not been moved to join the La C group, but can be found in its appropriate context (see e.g. within La Z).
Custodial HistoryThe first items were acquired by the University of Nottingham in the 1960s. The collection continues to grow from different sources as opportunity allows. Further provenance information is supplied at lower levels of description.
DescriptionThe collection consists of correspondence from D.H. Lawrence to various individuals on family, personal and literary matters. Correspondents include Rosalind Baynes, Dorothy Warren, Rev. R. Reid, Walter de la Mare, Dolly Radford and Marie Hubrecht.

Correspondence from Lawrence is also present within other sub-groups of the Lawrence Collection; in particular, significant numbers of letters can be found within the Papers of Louie Burrows (La B) and the George Lazarus Collection (La Z).
