Name of creator
Katherine Mansfield (1888-1923), the novelist and short story writer, spent most of her short life in England. Following a very brief first marriage in 1909, she fell in love with and later married John Middleton Murry. She died of tuberculosis in 1923.
Scope and content
The collection consists of transcripts of letters written by Mansfield to her father, Harold Beauchamp, 1916 and 1922, as well as transcripts of some letters written by her father about Katherine Mansfield, 1933-1937. There is also one letter from Isabel C. Clarke to Beauchamp, 1935. The transcripts, all typescript carbons, were presumably made some time after 1937, the date of the last letter.
Immediate source of acquisition
The collection (18-1995) was donated in 1994 (via Chris Petter of the University of Victoria Library) by Richard Beauchamp, grandson of Harold Beauchamp.
