Personal correspondence: letters from friends to Rachel Kempson

Scope and Content

This section is comprised of letters from friends to Rachel Kempson, and includes letters from Lynn Fontanne, John Gielgud, and Vivien Leigh. It also contains letters from Joan Hirst, the Redgrave's secretary, and K Randall, the childrens' nanny.


The sub-series is arranged alphabetically as far as possible, although letters from Joan Hirst and K Randell are at the beginning as these had been kept separately from the main run by Rachel Kempson
