  • Collection
  • 1888-1978

The collection consists of manuscripts of many published works, illustrations from Chesterton's time at the Slade School of Art and later, correspondence with family and friends, and albums of press clippings.

Additionally, the collection contains material added by Dorothy Collins after Chesterton's death.
In addition to the Chesterton papers on microfiche the G.K. Chesterton Archival Collection contains 10 original illustrations as well as one of Chesterton's sketchbooks. Most of the sketches date from his period at the Slade School of Art, but there are several from earlier.
The Papers of Monsignor John O'Connor (1870-1952) are also a part of the G.K. Chesterton Archival Collection. Monsignor O'Connor was the Catholic priest who became the model for Chesterton's character "Father Brown". In February 1903 O'Connor wrote to Chesterton, and the following year they formed an immediate bond of friendship which was to last more than thirty years. In 1921 O'Connor was present at Chesterton's reception into the Catholic Church. The papers of Monsignor O'Connor include a number of manuscripts of his poems and essays, Christmas greetings from the Chesterton's, personal letters, and newspaper clippings by and about Chesterton.

  • Collection
  • 1950-1979

A collection of 365 separate items with particular focus on concrete poetry and alternative publishing practices taking place in England in the 1960s and 1970s, but with international leanings. Presents the practice of Concrete Poetry as an international movement in which borders are blurred, including those between countries; between languages; and between the entites known as the author, the publisher, and the reader. Related movements such as Mail Art and Fluxus are represented. Shows a close relationship between writing and the physicality of published material through the exploration of alternative publishing practices that utilize a variety of printing and binding techniques. This materiality of the book provides a spectrum that stretches from Independent Publishing Alternatives to Fine Press Publishing through the use of offet printing, letterpress, Xerox, Mimeo, and printing by hand; binding techniques used include anything from stapled chapbooks to loose leaflets in plastic bags or custom folders, or single sheets or cards with no binding at all.
