The Lyn Newman Digital Archive (In Development)

The Lyn Newman Digital Archive is a digital reproduction of the Lyn Newman papers held in the library of St. John's College, Cambridge.

Lilian Lloyd Irvine left Girton College, CambridgCambridge in 1927 with a letter of introduction to Leonard Woolf, who got her a job reviewing fiction for the 'New Statesman', and later, commissioned and published her first book, 'Ten Letter Writers'.

Through the Woolfs, she met and started corresponding with other members of the Bloomsbury group, in particular Lady Antoinette Esher. During this period she also edited her own literary journal, 'The Monologue'. This early career as a journalist was curtailed in 1934 by marriage to Max Newman, Fellow of St John's College, Cambridge.

The collection comprises correspondence with Bloomsbury Group, family and friends; journal and diaries; miscellaneous family papers; original work; papers relating to 'The Monologue' and Monologue Books.

Given by William Newman, and others, 2004-8.
