MC:P110 Papers from the Roy Bishop collection of books
Roy Bishop assembled a large collection of books on cinema and film, which he bequeathed to Magdalen College on his death in 1999, although he had no previous links with the College.
When the collection was catalogued, a few loose papers were found in some of the books, which were transferred to the Archives in September 1999 as Acc. 99/189.
Catalogued in September 1999.
