Overview of archive collections

The Cambridge South Asian Archive consists of private papers, photographs and drawings, books, ciné film and tape recordings. Full details of the collection are given in Cambridge South Asian Archive. (Volumes 1-3,1974-83, edited by Mary Thatcher; Volumes 4-5, 1986-95, edited by Lionel Carter; a sixth volume is in preparation.) The text of these volumes is reproduced on microfiche in Chadwyck-Healey's National Inventory of U.K. Documentary Sources (Cambridge, 1985- ).

The present guide is a summary list of the collections of papers and memoirs in the South Asian Archive. Summary details for those collections where none are given are being added continuously. The memoirs listed are retrospectives: since its foundation in 1964 the Centre has encouraged the writing of memoirs by men and women who lived and worked in India. this has been considered to be of particular importance in those cases where original papers have not survived.

This list replaces the Brief guide to the original memoirs held in the Cambridge South Asian Archive (Lionel Carter, Cambridge, 1989) and Principal collections of papers in the Cambridge South Asian Archive, 3rd edition (Lionel Carter, Dusha Bateson, Cambridge, 1995). Nearly all the material contained in this list is the work of Dr Carter and Mrs Bateson and the credit for its creation must rest entirely with them.

Further information on the Archive may be obtained from the Archivist, Centre of South Asian Studies, Laundress Lane, Cambridge, CB2 1SD, England or by emailing the archivist.
