Scope and content

A large bulk of this collection are letters written to Frederick Brittain. They came into the Archive in boxes following the death of Muriel Brittain. There appeared to be no origianl order so it was decided to put them in chronological order and list them in groups of decades. Amongst he various boxes in the accession were loose letters but only very few written by F.B. himself. These have been listed individually.
