Launch of the Raymond Williams Catalogue
The full catalogue of the Raymond Williams Collection, held at the Richard Burton Archives, is now available online and researchers are welcome to consult the collection.
Raymond Henry Williams (1921-1988) was born in Pandy, Wales. He was a staff tutor of the Oxford University extra-mural delegacy, and became a lecturer in English at Cambridge University and a fellow of Jesus College in 1961. He later became the University’s first professor of drama. His writing of both fiction and non-fiction was significant and wide-ranging. As well as writing extensively about drama and literature, his work encompassed wider social and political matters. He married Joyce (Joy) Dalling in 1942 and they had three children.
The diversity of his interests are shown in the archive, which includes his published academic works and novels, articles and reviews, together with unpublished writings, correspondence, personal papers and many other documents.
The collection was catalogued thanks to support from the Barry Amiel and Norman Melburn Trust,[i] and joint funding from the College of Arts and Humanities and Information Services and Systems, Swansea University.
