Discover Barbara Bruce on the Hub

The PaxCat project passed an important milestone last week with the publication on the Archives Hub of our very first multi-level catalogue covering the papers of the volunteer nurse and relief worker Barbara Bruce (1906-1976).  Many thanks to Paddy Collis at the Hub for working closely with me to get this right.

The full catalogue can be found by a quick search on her name or the reference code for the collection, GB 0532 Cwl BBR, or by visiting this link.  This will allow you to browse the collection.  To search and retrieve descriptions of individual letters, you should use the Hub’s advanced search option.  I suggest reading the collection description first, as a way of finding out about the content and scope of Barbara’s surviving letters and photographs.  This will help you to search the catalogue in a more focussed and useful way.

Please email or with any queries, or to arrange to view the collection.
