About this work


Under this heading are included colleagues, pupils etc, in Canada, Australia and New Zealand, Singapore, South Africa and India as well as in the British Isles. This section falls into two main groups of letters. Firstly there is a group of letters B.1-B.23 from various individuals with whom ESS was associated and with whom he had a considerable amount of correspondence. It is not clear what criteria were employed in selecting out this group while other correspondents of importance have been left in the alphabetical sequence. This group has been arranged chronologically by the date of the earliest item. It should be noted that the William Sharpey material includes a number of Sharpey's own papers which were saved from destruction by ESS, as well as letters from Sharpey to ESS. The second group B.24-B.65 consists of correspondents arranged in alphabetical sequence. Although most correspondents in this series are represented by a mere one or two letters some corresponded with ESS over quite some period. For ease of handling and reference the series has been divided up into 65 files with the general reference PP/ESS/B. Each letter within each file has a number of its own. Letters from ESS's pupils Sanger BROWN and Sutherland SIMPSON are to be found under AMERICAN COLLEAGUES. Letters from a number of these correspondents are to be found in other sections of this collection.
