Welcome to our new UEA Archives blog. We are launching with a glimpse at a selection of exhibits now on display at the approach to UEA Archives and in our Archive Reading Room. 17 images take our visitors through climate change, wild writing, iconic 20th century architecture, post war Rhodesia and some world renowned writers of contemporary literature. Visitors can view images from Doris Lessing’s archive, including an early short story, Little Tembi, published in May 1951 in John Bull magazine. There is also a picture of J.D. Salinger (1919-2010), author of Catcher in the Rye, photographed at his writing desk. Beside it is a letter to his old friend, Donald Hartog (1919-2007), in which he talks about his aversion to the publishing industry. Their correspondence, held within our Archive collections, continued over several decades. Elsewhere, there is a dispatch to Reuters from East Berlin from the journalist, Anthony Grey, shortly before his capture and 777 day detention in Beijing for reporting on the Cultural Revolution. There are also glimpses from the Pritchard Papers and Isokon Trust Over the coming weeks we will feature some of the images and the stories behind them.
