Letters to Joseph Macleod from various correspondents.

Identifier: Acc.12964/1-19

Scope and Contents

This collection of letters was found by his family long after the National Library of Scotland had acquired the bulk of Joseph Macleod's archive in 1992. It is not quite clear why this correspondence was filed separately by Joseph Macleod, but much of it is personal, from family and friends. Some correspondents have proved unidentifiable during the somewhat hasty compilation of this inventory; any further information or corrections will be gratefully received by the Manuscripts Division, National Library of Scotland.


  • Creation: Majority of material found within 1917-1955, undated.
