Custodial history

Scope and content

Series consists of Russell’s appointment diaries, which contain a variety of information. Note that the diaries for 1906-1907 went missing before the archives came to McMaster; the diary for the year 1968/69 was not used, so the latest content is for 1967/68.

The diaries were acquired with both Archives 1 and Archives 2 but are now arranged together in one sequence. The RA2 print finding aid notes: “includes Russell’s Cambridge Pocket Diaries from 1953 to 1970. These diaries record not only his appointments but also his income as an author.”

Other notes

  • General note:

    Russell’s fourth wife, Edith, also kept appointment diaries listing his appointments and well as hers (box 2.23). They begin in 1950 and are much more complete than Russell’s own pocket diaries.
