Scope and content

Diaries, 1970 - 1979, of Siân Phillips, some of the diaries having been printed for that purpose, others being notebooks used as diaries. The contents largely relate to Siân Phillips' personal, domestic and family affairs and to her professional life. Some entries, including one insert, made in what appears to be the hand of Siân Phillips' second husband, Peter O'Toole. One diary has the initials 'P.O.' embossed at lower right-hand corner of cover (most likely relating to Peter O'Toole, although there is no evidence of his hand within that particular volume).

Appraisal, destruction and scheduling


System of arrangement

Due to multiple diaries of the same year, and a need to fit a wide variety of volume sizes into the same box, there is little or no attempt at chronological arrangement.
