Scope and Contents

From the Collection:

The Catherine Walston/Graham Greene Papers consist in bulk of correspondence written by Greene to Lady Walston over a span of three decades from 1946 through 1978. In addition, the collection includes a large portion of original autograph and typed manuscripts, as well as rare proof copies of his works that the author presented over the years as gifts to Lady Walston. There is also a substantial collection of photographs of Greene and Lady Walston, together with friends such as writers Norman Douglas and John Hayward; and film producer Sir Alexander Korda and director Carol Reed. Several portrait-size photographs of Greene are included by notable photographers such as Cornell Capa, Douglas Glass, Yousuf Karsh, Islay de Courcy Lyons, and Jean Marie Marcel. Press clippings of articles both by and about Greene also enrich the collection, as do the unique ephemera/muniments consisting of printed souvenirs and small gift objects presented by Greene to Lady Walston.
