This sub-class consists of material which was originally stored in an extremely bulky file containing numerous subsidiary files or bundles of material. The papers are disparate and wide-ranging in nature. They include: biographical and autobiographical articles by and about RD; publicity material for films The Magic Box and Lease of Life; scripts of radio broadcasts; early theatrical reviews of plays RD attended in Manchester as a teenager; a volume relating to Frank Benson's Scottish Historical Pageant in 1927; papers relating to RD's production of The Kingdom of God at the Cambridge Festival Theatre in 1930; and personal correspondence.
