The D. H. Lawrence Literary File consists of approximately 1,400 items, including images of D.H. and Frieda Lawrence, Frieda’s first husband Ernest Weekley and his family, her third husband Angelo Ravagli, her mother Baroness von Richthofen, her daughter Barbara, and other members of her family, as well as Dorothy Brett, Witter Bynner, Walter Willard "Spud" Johnson, Mabel Dodge Luhan, Lady Ottoline Morrell, Padre Edward A. Rickards, and various other people. There are also views of places associated with Lawrence in the English midlands, New South Wales, Oaxaca, and New Mexico, as well as photographic reproductions of paintings by Lawrence. The images in the two albums document Lawrence’s travels in Mexico and Europe as retraced by LaVerne Harrell and L.D. Clark in circa 1960. An index at the end of this guide lists photographers whose work is featured in this file. Further descriptions of some items are available in a card catalog in the repository.
This collection forms a part of the Literary File Photograph Collection, which is comprised of photographs and albums withdrawn from the libraries and/or papers of literary figures, and generally include portraits and images collected by or of those figures.

Additional Lawrence material is available in mauscript collections at the Harry Ransom Center.
