Scope and Content Note

The series consists of personal files of Desmond O'Grady including diaries and subject files. Of particular interest in Subseries 4.1 are the diaries 1964-2001 in which O'Grady recorded his thoughts and feelings on the major events in his life.

The subject files (Subseries 4.2) contain printed material and correspondence relating to specific individuals such as Katherine Washburn and Noel Harrington and organizations such as Aosdana. Some subject files such as the Katherine Washburn, Noel Harrington, and Teaching Material files were created by O'Grady. Other files, such as Aosdana, financial papers, and drawings, were artificially assembled out of similar materials found throughout the papers.
