Ada and DH Lawrence

Manuscripts and Special Collections is very pleased to announce the successful acquisition of the Ada Clarke archives, a major DH Lawrence collection. Ada Clarke was Lawrence's younger sister and the collection includes notebooks from his time as a student at the University College Nottingham, manuscripts of poems and short stories, corrected proofs, correspondence, photographs, first editions, works of art and artefacts. The two year funding campaign was supported by the Campaign and Alumni Relations Office and the acquisition would not have been possible without the generous support of the National Heritage Memorial Fund, the University of Nottingham and various charities including the Foyle Foundation, the Friends of the National Libraries, the Aurelius Trust, the Duke of Portland's Trust and the Thriplow Trust.

The acquisition attracted substantial media coverage across TV, Radio, Print and Digital media in the UK and overseas.
