Cataloged and arranged.
In 1898 Mary Augusta Ward was asked by George Smith to write the critical introductions for his "Haworth edition" of the Brontë novels (London, Smith, Elder, 1899-1902). These papers are her manuscripts, drafts, proofs, and notes assembled for the project, and include typescripts of Charlotte Brontë's letters to George Smith, 1847-1854. Other notes and correspondence concern her work for The Brontë Society. Also, some correspondence about her volunteer work during World War I and the complete manuscript and drafts for her last novel, HARVEST, which was posthumously published in 1920.
