Reading, research and reference notes

Sub- series consists of 9 files containing typed and handwritten notes related to Watson's personal and professional reading and academic research, including extensive bibliographic references found on loose paper, cigarette packages and scraps of paper. The sub-series has been arranged chronologically where possible, however, due to the ephemeral nature of much of the material and the tendency of Watson not to date her notes, the bulk of the material can only be given broad date ranges.

Reading notebooks

Sub- series consists of 40 files containing reading and research notes in notebooks, some of which can be dated. These notebooks relate to Watson's reading notes created in the course of her personal and professional activities as a writer, Ph.D. student and professor of English. These notebooks tend to contain brief page references and quotations from books, journal articles and magazine columns. There appears to be a gap in the record, with little or no material from the 1970s. Some notebooks contain news clippings and ephemera.
