Taking her subject from one of Jim Ede's bold assertions, the speaker is Frieda Midgley, Archivist at Kettle's Yard and also Archivist and Records Manager at Wolfson College. During the last 6 years the Kettle's Yard collection has been catalogued and rehoused, making it available to researchers and using it to inspire and inform every aspect of work there.
This talk is one of a series of free lectures hosted by the Friends of St. Giles' Church, given every second Thursday of the Month at 11am in St Giles' Church. Refreshments are served from 10.30 am. Full details of each lecture are normally given three weeks in advance.
