Scope and Contents
Articles and poems published in newspapers and magazines are all faithfully preserved in 16 large albums of press cuttings.
She was a keen supporter of the Democratic Party and the correspondence files contain some letters of Eleanor Roosevelt and Adlai Stevenson. The papers include several travel journals, and manuscripts and typescripts of many articles, verses, songs and hymns - which she had a gift for writing, despite her own agnosticism. Also significant are the manuscripts of two unfinished works: an autobiography, and ‘Cactus and Columbine’ which was to have been her book about the USA, where she lived for most of the last 10 years of her life.
In addition to her own papers, and generally filed alongside the relevant manuscripts, are related documents (mostly newspaper and journal articles) collected after Joyce Placzek`s death.
