Modern archives

The Centre's personal paper collections have developed since 1930 when those of the poet and Kingsman Rupert Brooke were transferred. They are now especially strong in the fields of early twentieth century literature, fine art and economics. Particularly well documented are the lives and works of Bloomsbury artists Vanessa Bell and Duncan Grant and art critics Roger Fry and Clive Bell; the writer E.M. Forster; the poet T.S. Eliot; the economists J.M. Keynes, Joan Robinson, Richard Kahn and Nicholas Kaldor; and the computer scientist Alan Turing.

A number of the modern archive catalogues are now available on the Janus website. The work of editing the catalogues for publication on Janus was made possible through financial assistance from the East of England Museums Libraries and Archives Council (EEMLAC).
