Series 1
Letters, 1707-2010 [bulk 1878-1923]
Boxes 1 - 2 and OP 1

Scope and Content Note

The series consists of letters written or received by Bram Stoker, family members, friends, and colleagues, including his wife, Florence; his brother, Tom; his close friend, Hall Caine; Lyceum Theatre actors, Henry Irving and Ellen Terry. There is no true correspondence in this collection and letters do not document any back-and-forth communication. Many of Irving's letters were penned by Stoker and signed by Irving, documenting Stoker's role as business manager of the Lyceum Theatre. Numerous letters of both Stoker and Irving appear on letterhead from Irving's various tours of the United States, during which Stoker accompanied him as manager. The series contains a significant number of letters from Tom Stoker to his wife Enid, documenting both their romantic relationship and his work and travels as a member of the British civil service in India.

Arrangement Note

Arranged in alphabetical order.

Processing Note

Letters are arranged primarily by author. Some letters are arranged by recipient if the recipient was central to Moore's collecting or if the collection only includes letters received by that individual. Letter counts are provided only to indicate that there is a relatively small quantity of letters documenting lengthy time periods.
