Extent: 2 boxes (.84 linear feet)
Abstract: Includes manuscripts and letters written by the English artist William Rothenstein. Dominant are manuscript versions of his Men of the R. A. F. (1942) and related correspondence. Because his poor health kept him from going abroad as a war artist, Rothenstein instead made portrait drawings of airmen at RAF bases in England for this book. Letters from Rothenstein to Joseph Maunsell Hone, Harold Monro, Grant Richards, Elizabeth Robins, and Henry Tonks are also included.
