Scope and Content

Correspondence and papers of Reinhardt and Sir John Elliot, formerly John Elliot Blumenfeld, and Sir John Elliott's son, David Elliot. These relate to a biography of Sir John Elliot’s father, Ralph David Blumenfeld, by Frank Joseph Parisi, and proposals to publish it, and subsequent correspondence of David Elliot, regarding this and the biography of Sir John Elliot prepared by Reinhardt for the Dictionary of National Biography, 1886-1990 supplement, at the request of the editor, C. S. Nicholls. Parisi’s biography was considered for publication by The Bodley Head readers, but rejected. Reinhardt’s life of Elliot, of which there are three drafts, was eventually so amended by the editor that it appeared under Nicholls’ name in the published volume, of which there is a photocopy.
