Correspondence and writings about Christopher Hewett

Scope and Content

This series contains correspondence with Walter Strachan relating to Christopher Hewett, including responses to hearing of his death, and letters relating to arrangements for the memorial booklet and Taranman exhibition held in October-November 1984. There are also numerous drafts of pieces Strachan wrote about Hewett, his work and his friendship with Sydney Cockerell; it seems that much of this was intended for inclusion in Strachan's memoirs.


The material was arranged into labelled bundles by Strachan; the list below broadly reflects his ordering of the papers.
