Subseries 4.3
Writings, 1833-1890
Boxes 34-35, BV 1

Scope and Content Note

The subseries contains the writings of W.H. Gregory from 1833 to 1890. These include published works (poetry from Harrow, speeches and pamphlets) as well as manuscripts. The bulk of the series is made up of notes, drafts, and printed editions of Gregory's speeches in parliament from 1860 to 1871. The notes do not always correspond directly to the printed versions of the speechs, but reflect many of Gregory's views not portrayed in the official versions. There is little material after 1870, with the exception of three articles authored by Gregory. Two notebooks (Box 35, folder 18 and OP1) contain statistics and historical sketches, presumably for the preparation of speeches.

Arrangement Note

Within the subseries, the papers are divided into groups by topic. The groups are then arranged in chronological order. The topical subgroupings are determined from the original arrangement.
