This report focuses on the acquisition of the Murry/Mansfield archive by the Alexander Turnbull Library after two years of negotiation with the Murry family. Earlier purchases from Murry demonstrate a story of an emerging national resource, but also of the resuscitation of Mansfield’s spirit. The latest purchase is the largest acquired by the ATL since the 1950s. As well as Murry’s papers, there are documents relating to D.H. and Frieda Lawrence, photographs, Hogarth Press First editions, locks of Mansfield’s hair, her cloak and typewriter, and a Māori head carved from gum. An important discovery in this collection was made by Gerri Kimber, ‘Sumurun: Am Impression of Leopoldine Konstantin’ (1911), a previously unknown creative impression of a play that Mansfield saw in London in January 1911.
