Duley, Margaret
TitleDuley, Margaret
Scope and Content of FondsMargaret Duley wrote at least five novels, a non-fiction book, a number of short stories, poems, radio - broadcast scripts and volumes of correspondence. Yet very little of that body of material has survived. It - is believed that she destroyed her own manuscripts and other writings and much of her incoming - correspondence. That some of her work has survived is probably due more to oversight than intention. - What is included in this collection is mainly outgoing correspondence, written by Duley to her sister, aunt - and cousin. It is those people who are responsible for its survival. This collection consists of correspondence between Margaret Duley and her aunt, Alice Duley Jefferies, - and her cousin, Freda Jefferies, both living in England, covering approximately the 10-year period - between 1952 and 1962. There is also a second correspondence in the form of a continuing letter - journal which Duley wrote almost daily to her sister, Gladys Courtney, in North Carolina, during Duley's - European trip in 1953. Other items include two formal family pictures, one of the five Duley children and - one of the parents and children with extended family members, both taken around 1898. There is a small - amount of Margaret Duley's original writing: drafts of short stories; a novel fragment; a notebook, which - provide a brief glimpse into her creative abilities.
