Scope and Contents

This addition to the Francis King Papers contains his personal literary correspondence, 1948-2000, and writings including juvenilia and short stories.

The collection is arranged in two series: Series I. Correspondence includes incoming letters in Subseries A. Outgoing correspondence to Cyril Eland, Tony Jebez-Smith, and James Sartin is found in Subseries B. The full names of correspondents are notated by King throughout. An index of correspondents follows the folder list.

Series II. Writings contains handwritten notebooks from King's schooldays at Shrewsbury, including a book of poetry; two handwritten journals kept during his stay in Japan in 1963; published and unpublished short stories; and a piece on Christopher Isherwood. Also present is a handwritten draft of J. R. Ackerley's "The Bench of Renunciation" with Ackerley's correspondence with Cyril Eland.

Originally housed in binders, each letter sustained two punched holes causing some minor loss of text. Otherwise the materials are in good condition.
