Scope and content
This series includes Coxeter’s daily diaries that he kept beginning in Cambridge in 1933. They are mainly the “5 Year” format and briefly note daily activities. There is a continuous run from 1933 to 2002. There is also a 2003 diary kept by Susan Thomas, who was living with and nursing her father. Entries are written by Susan but describe their last months together. The final entry on March 18 2003 was written by Coxeter less than 2 weeks before he died. Predating these diaries, is one notebook from 1928 in which Coxeter detailed his dreams.
Finally there is an appointment book (1953) belonging to Rien Coxeter and researchers should note that Coxeter’s 2001 diary contains the odd entry by Rien for the year 1937.
