The papers of Frederic Whyte (1867-1941) form a literary archive although it contains a large amount of correspondence. The letters date largely from the late-Nineteenth and early-Twentieth Centuries and include correspondence with publishers, editors and literary agents. Correspondence also includes letters from Arthur Conan Doyle, George Bernard Shaw and correspondence with H.G. Wells.
There are articles, notes and draft translations (including a manuscript draft and copy of an article 'Portrait of Cecil Rhodes' and correspondence about M.G. Sarfatti's biography of Mussolini); material for Whyte's Life of W.T. Stead, miscellaneous photographs, cuttings (including a scrapbook of press cuttings on the Boer War), book reviews, manuscript diaries, some publications and material relating to Sweden.
