Penguins in Podium

4 July 2008

A £650,000 grant from the AHRC to the Penguin Archive is the cover story of this summer’s issue of Podium magazine.

The Penguin Archive comprises more than 2,300 boxes of letters, notes and other papers spanning the history of the company from its establishment in 1935, by Bristol-born Allen Lane, to the present day.

The archive is one of the Special Collections held by the University Library.

The four-year project is led by Dr John Lyon of the Department of English with co-investigators George Donaldson (English), Dr Hugh Pemberton (Historical Studies) and Dr Ika Willis (Classics).
