Elizabeth Coxhead Collection

The Elizabeth Coxhead manuscript collection consists of the typed, final drafts of her biography of Lady Gregory, Lady Gregory: A Literary Portrait. Included in separate folders are the preliminaries, acknowledgements, preface, and the fifteen chapters with minor editing marks, small additions and deletions as well as a list of Lady Gregory's principal publications, a bibliography, and an index. Of special interest are Coxhead's explanations for agreeing or disagreeing with the suggested alterations to her book. Two published reviews complete the collection.
