Dawson's papers consist of personal papers, correspondence, printed papers, newspapers and photographs. The personal papers include a series of diaries, which he began to keep in 1893, and provides an interesting overall view of his life. Although the collection contains some material relating to the administration of The Times, the bulk of the papers are political in content. The collection also includes a small amount of his wife's correspondence.
