Scope and Content

Autograph notes on loose leaf paper previously housed in a metal ring binder folder. Contains notes on different subjects including historical figures and different religions; and diary entries with details of events, people and places in Hughes's life (several refer to time spent in the USA in the late 1950s). The last two pages, (which have been paperclipped together) are about Tolstoy and his writing and appear to be later in date than the rest of the material although they are undated. Hughes's visit to the BBC to meet George MacBeth and the recording of some of his poetry there in 1960 are also mentioned.
