Scope and Content

This class consists of a bundle of notes and extracts relating to Carpenter, presumably made by Sixsmith in the course of his research for articles and talks. The material includes: copies of extracts from letters written by and about Carpenter; extracts from books which relate to Carpenter; and transcripts of reviews of Carpenter's works.

5/14 is a small booklet containing transcripts of correspondence between E.B. Gibson, Sheffield Town Clerk, and Leonard Green, one of Carpenter's literary executors. The correspondence relates to Sheffield Council's acceptance of a gift of books and manuscripts formerly belonging to Carpenter, presented by a Mr T. Nicholson. The executors object to this on the grounds that they hold the rights to this material.

All items are manuscript, except 1171/5/13 which is a carbon copy of a typescript sheet. 1171/5/1 is written on the reverse of an envelope posted to Mr [J.W.] Wallace at Farnworth, Lancs.
