Subseries 2.4a
Uncollected short stories
Box 87: folders 1-4; OP8

Scope and Content Note

The subseries consists of manuscript and typescript drafts of uncollected short stories by Ted Hughes. Because of Hughes' propensity to reuse paper, cross-references are used to note locations of related materials in other parts of the collection.
