Scope and Content

Diaries and papers of P. A. Spalding (1911-89), with diaries and some papers of his maternal grandmother Emma Bigwood, later Baynes, and of his uncle N. H. Baynes (1877-1961), 19th-20th cent.

Spalding, whose diary begins in Sept. 1930, was at Balliol College, Oxford, 1930-3; lived in London, 1933-8, and moved to Churt (in Surrey) in 1938, the year of his marriage to Edna Brown, née Young. Of independent means, Spalding devoted much of his life to reading and writing, and considered his diary to be his most important written work. His published work includes A Reader's Handbook to Proust (London, 1952), some volumes of verse and prose, and Self-Harvest, a study of diaries and the diarist (London, 1949).

There are three sets of his diaries - a group of holiday diaries, 1923-42 (MSS. Eng. d. 2305-6, e. 2517-27), the main journal, 1930-86 (MSS. Eng. c. 2767-88, d. 2307-36, e. 2528-58), and diaries, 1935, 1940-83 (MSS. Eng. e. 2559-2603), containing daily notes on the weather and brief memoranda of Spalding's activities each day. The papers include some unpublished literary work, and several boxes of correspondence. Both sides of his life-long correspondence with Dr. G. F. Nuttall are in Dr. William's Library, London. Photographs of Spalding, his house, relations and some friends are MS. Photogr. c. 15, items 71-120.

Acquisition

The papers were given to the Bodleian by Mrs. Joyce Limon, 1991.
