Vera Brittain fonds. First Accrual, Series K.

Series K: Outgoing Correspondence

This series consists of carbon copies of some of the correspondence sent out by Vera Brittain. These copies are arranged by date and cover the period from November 1929 to March 1970. Once Vera Brittain had regular secretarial help, carbon copies were kept of most of her letters. However, handwritten letters were not usually copied.

The archive also includes separate files of correspondence sent by Vera Brittain to family members and close friends. Some of these letters are carbon copies, and some are originals which came back to Vera Brittain after the death of the recipient. The letters from Vera Brittain to George Catlin are currently listed in this section.
