DCA/11 is described as covering Miscellaneous Correspondence. In fact a large number of the files contain correspondence between individual staff members and their personal contacts. The rest originally related to public responses to the Design Centre, whether enquiring, complimentary or critical.
Of the files that remain, 9 relate explicitly to Paul Reilly"s personal correspondence. A further two initiative-based files also derive from Reilly"s involvement. Gordon Russell and Anthony Armstrong-Jones each have a file. Of the group relating to responses to the Design Centre, only two files survive: one on Awards made to the Council, and another detailing complaints about retailers and stockists of items shown at the Centre. This last was opened by the Exhibits Progress Section.
