The Leverhulme Trust has recently approved a pilot project to assess the
feasibility of establishing a complete inventory of the manuscripts,
printed works, photographs and recordings of Robert Graves. If
successful, this one-year pilot will seek funding for the creation of a
machine- readable archive of all materials relating to the poet and will
provide researchers with a revision of Higginson's Bibliography; the
locations of Graves manuscripts and letters; &c. &c. The project will
be based at St John's College (Oxford) under the aegis of the Robert
Graves Trust established by William Graves the poet's son. The
principal administrators of the Trust are John Kelly (Vice President of
St John's) and Patrick Quinn. As advisor to the project I am putting
this announcement on the Internet in the hope that it will attract the
attention of Graves scholars everywhere.

Although the major collections are well known there are still many
hundreds of letters and photographs in private possession, and these are
likely to present problems - since Graves was a prolific correspondent.
If anyone knows of the existence of Graves materials in librareis which
may be overlooked please communicate with me at the following address
until the Trust is in a position to receive email:

Robin Alston
School of Library & Archive Studies
University College London

It is hoped that a research student will be appointed early in 1994 to
begin work on identifying material and establishing a suitable format
(within the constraints of RLIN/AMC) for the records.
