Edwin Morgan Archive

The Edwin Morgan Archive was collected over a period of thirty years by Hamish Whyte, Edwin Morgan's friend, publisher and bibliographer.

The Archive represents the most significant and accessible collection of his work in print and other media, vividly illustrating the breadth and variety of his writing, his publishing career, and its context, decade by decade.

Handwritten corrections and notes made by Morgan in the published texts give an illuminating insight into the mind of the poet.

For students of publishing and graphic design, the Edwin Morgan Archive also gives an insight into changing publishing trends in the UK, from hand-production in the 50s, to xeroxing in the 60s, to digitisation in the 80s, 90s and beyond.
