Overview and metadata sections

Goldring, Douglas, 1887-1960

Douglas Goldring was an English writer and journalist. Having inherited a legacy, he left Oxford without a degree, and moved to London to write. In 1908 he was a sub-editor under Ford Madox Ford for English Review, and later edited his own literary magazine, The Tramp, publishing early works by Wyndham Lewis. Goldring was also noted as a radical journalist and prolific contributor to left-wing publications. He wrote twenty-five books, including poetry, novels, literary criticism, travel, and two autobiographies.

The collection consists of selected correspondence of Douglas Goldring. Correspondents include Arnold Bennett, Francis Bickley, Alfred Bruce Douglas, Norman Douglas, Wyndham Lewis, John Middleton Murry, Theodore Francis Powys, George Bernard Shaw, Hugh Walpole, and H. G. Wells. Also included are sixty-one letters by Goldring to Oliver Stonor, many of which are about Violet Hunt and her work.

Arranged by accession number.

The collection was formed as a result of a Departmental practice of combining into one collection material of various accessions relating to a particular person, family, or subject.
