Personal correspondence, and related papers

Administrative / Biographical History

This series of correspondence consists partly of the archive given by Jim Ede's to the University of Cambridge, along with Kettle's Yard house and the art collection; partly of correspondence with artists that Ede sent to Kettle's Yard after his departure in 1973; and partly of correspondence about particular artists and other material relating to them, which has historically been filed with their correspondence.

Much of the correspondence was arranged into a single alphabetical series by correspondent in the early 2000s (KY/EDE/1/1). Large groupings of correspondence from and/or relating to individuals of particular significance to Kettle's Yard, have remained separate, and are arranged by surname, following the A-Z series. The correspondence received by Jim Ede after he left Kettle's Yard in 1973 has retained its chronological arrangement.
