Biographical Information

Scope and Content

The following series comprises a file of biographical information relating both to Harold Blundell and his literary works. The material itself is undated, and includes biographical information on the author prepared by staff of The John Rylands University Library, photocopied extracts from various bibliographies of crime fiction, press cuttings, obituaries, and material and programmes announcing Blundell's honorary Masters Degree ceremony in 1959.


The file of biographical information was not donated with the rest of the archive but it has been included with it since the material relates to Blundell and his literary career, out of which the archive itself was generated, and it is likely to be of interest to researchers. The series has been placed towards the end of the catalogue to reflect the fact that, for the most part, the material refers retrospectively to his life and work.
