‘The Private Diaries of Robert Proctor’

The bibliographer Robert Proctor kept a private diary for the last four years of his life. From it we gain a picture of his work at the British Museum, his private life with Mother in Oxshott, and his obsession with anything related to William Morris. The talk will show how the diaries shed light on the life and death of an extraordinary man.

This event is part of the History of Libraries Seminar Series.

A number of seminar podcasts will be found on the website of the Institute of Historical Research at https://historyspot.org.uk/podcasts/history-libraries, including talks given by Alistair Black, Mark Purcell, Peter Hoare, Geoffrey Little, and Greg Woolf.
