Scope and Content
The files are arranged roughly into chronological order, beginning with the earliest drafts. Files EL/01/02/01-06 are all dated, and these drafts were written between 1941 and 1947. The other drafts in the series are not dated but can be roughly divided into two groups - EL/01/02/07-14, which all appear to have been written while Elinor Lyon was living in Rugby between circa 1958 and 1975, and EL/01/02/15-19, which all appear to have been written after Elinor Lyon and her husband moved to Harlech, Wales, in 1975.
