Felton, Anton (1935-)

Historia biográfica

Anton Felton was Bertrand Russell's literary agent. Russell hired him in 1966 to prepare his papers for sale and market the Autobiography. Felton, C.A. (later) M.Phil. (Oxon.), already had his own accounting firm, Felton and Partners, and thus he was also retained as Russell's accountant and that of the Bertrand Russell Peace Foundation. Felton set up a separate firm, Continuum 1 Ltd., to handle the literary affairs of Russell and his other literary client, Len Deighton. There is one slim file of material pertaining to Deighton in the fonds. Felton was named as one of Russell's three literary executors in Russell's will and was responsible for Russell's estate until 1995 when the estate was wound up. Felton employed Barry Feinberg to do much of the work of the firm pertaining to Russell. Christopher Farley, Russell's secretary from 1966 until Russell's death in 1970, a director of the Bertrand Russell Peace Foundation, and another of Russell's literary executors, worked closely with Felton and Feinberg on all matters pertaining to Russell and Russell's estate. Kenneth Blackwell was another employee until Archives I was sold to McMaster University on 28 March 1968. Since his retirement Felton has published a work in an area of long-standing private interest: Jewish Carpets: A History and Guide (1997).

Historial de custodia

Alcance y contenido

There have been two accruals. The first accrual arrived in disarray. The only series containing files in their original order are the Estate Accounting series and 2 files in the Feinberg series. Organization had to be imposed on most other files because file labels bore no relationship to contents and contents were mixed. The fonds has been thus been organized into the following series: Organization of Russell Archives, Preparation of the Catalogue and Its Sales; Sale of the Archives; Sale and Continuing Relationship with McMaster University; Anton Felton Correspondence; Barry Feinberg Correspondence; Russell's Books and Articles; Publishing Projects Involving Other Authors; Film Projects; Legal and Financial; Estate Accounting; Russell Correspondence; Edith Russell Correspondence and Memorandum; Russell Biographical Information, Photograph, Meetings; Printed Materials. The second small accrual consists mainly of legal documents.
