The Evacuee archive (ref D EVAC) has now been catalogued and the majority of the collection is available for consultation in our reading room. Some parts of the collection are closed to the public, because of Data Protection issues. Please contact us if you would like to know more about this.
It is a fascinating collection and is already being used by a PhD student, and Laura Farrell, one of the Reading Connections project interns has been researching the collection, which will form the basis of a piece by Dr Teresa Murjas for the project. There will be a blog post about this very soon.
