  • Scope and Contents

    The collection relates to Archie Foley`s research into Graham Moffat and his company, which included other members of the Moffat family. Moffat was best-known for his 1911 hit play, `Bunty Pulls the Strings`, which had a long run in London`s West End and on Broadway, and was made into a film in 1921. The collection includes early programmes and copies of promotional photographs for the play, papers relating to other works by Moffat and copies of a few of his letters. The later correspondence is mainly from family members and others who remembered Graham Moffat.
