Correspondence of Nancy Nicholson

Scope and Content

Nancy Nicholson's correspondence to her former husband largely concerns financial arrangements for the education and support of their youngest child, Sam, and some matters concerning their son David's service in the Royal Welch Fusiliers and his death in Burma in 1943. She also writes forcefully on the subject of divorce and married women not taking their husbands' surnames. The later correspondence from 1971 and 1972 concerns their grandchildren, and their daughter Catherine Dalton's book 'Without Hardware' about the death of her husband.
