Business correspondence

Scope and Content

Correspondence relating to Michael Redgrave's involvement in plays, films, books and other projects. It seems that these files were probably maintained by Michael Redgrave's secretary and were the main files used in which to store all material relating to his various projects. As a result many contain not only correspondence but also general administrative papers, receipts, schedules of performances, cast lists, and notes. Some also include press cuttings, financial information, and some photographs and programmes.

Although many of these files do relate to his high profile films and plays, other events in Michael Redgrave's life are also documented here, including his knighthood and his dealings with his agents.

Arrangement

This correspondence was maintained alphabetically by Michael Redgrave according to subject or title of play, film, or project. The original order has been kept as far as possible.
