This class consists of papers relating to Kenneth Barrow's book, Mr Chips: The Life of Robert Donat (Methuen, 1985). Barrow himself was an actor, writer, designer and director in the theatre, and his first book was a biography of Dame Flora Robson. He was given access to RD's papers by the family and was also responsible for the original arrangement and indexing of RD's correspondence. Most of these papers appear to have been kept together in a single file by John Donat, and apart from the typescript draft of the volume, which forms an item in its own right, the correspondence and other papers have been left as a single bundle in their original order.
