Lilly Library Manuscript Collections


The Bridson mss. II, ca. 1932-1981, consist of the papers and writings, of writer and BBC producer Douglas Geoffrey Bridson, 1910-1980. The Lilly Library first acquired Mr. Bridson papers, relating primarily to his BBC work, during his lifetime (see Bridson mss.). This collection includes primarily his non-BBC writings - poetry, essays, speeches, field diaries, etc. - both published and unpublished. There are a few broadcast scripts and some correspondence, memoranda, etc., connected with publications and broadcasts. Other correspondence is with family, friends and colleagues over the years.
