This blog concerns the poet and memoirist Siegfried Sassoon (1886–1967) and the collections of his manuscripts and papers held in Cambridge University Library. In particular it will give news about the cataloguing of the Sassoon archive acquired by the Library in 2009, and the exhibition being held to celebrate its arrival, ‘Dream Voices: Siegfried Sassoon, Memory and War’.
Zoe is the project cataloguer who will be working on the construction of the online catalogue over the next twenty months or so.
John is curating the Library’s exhibition ‘Dream Voices: Siegfried Sassoon, Memory and War’, opening in July 2010.
Enquiries about the Library’s Sassoon collections or exhibitions programme that you don’t wish to have published on the blog as Comments can be sent to John at firstname.lastname@example.org.
