Papers of R. B. McKerrow

These letters and papers in this group all relate either to the works from which they were removed or to similar literary and bibliographical subjects.

McKerrow, Ronald Brunlees (1872-1940), bibliographer and literary scholar

Scientific correspondence

The material is presented alphabetically, with dates and a brief indication of any information of particular interest.

Taylor's undimmed scientific reputation, the high respect he enjoyed, and the eagerness with which younger scientists continued to seek and accept his advice, emerge with remarkable clarity from the letters, most of which date from the later period of his life.

As with the personal correspondence in Section A, only incoming letters usually survive. Professor G.K. Batchelor was, however, able to obtain originals or photocopies of Taylor's letters from some of his correspondents, and thus reconstruct a relatively complete sequence. Examples of this can be found at D.7, D.13, D.29, D.43-D.46, D.52, D.60, D.64, D.65, D.71, D.87.

Apart from these more substantial exchanges, some ms. drafts or copies of Taylor's replies to individual correspondents also survive. They are noted in the relevant entries. A full list is appended below for ease of reference.
