Abstract:

The Dawn Langley Simmons Papers span the years 1848-2001, with the bulk of the papers being dated between 1969 and 2000. The collection includes material collected and created by Simmons when she was using the names Gordon Langley Hall, Dawn Pepita Langley Hall, and Dawn Langley Simmons. The collection houses extensive files of correspondence dating from the 1950s to 2000, with topics ranging from Simmons' formative years in Great Britain, her relationship with her mother, Marjorie Hall Copper, literary circles in Great Britain, later personal events such as her wedding, and Simmons' development as a writer. Significant correspondents or individuals mentioned in letters and other materials include Isabel Whitney, Margaret Rutherford, Vita Sackville-West, Sir Harold Nicolson, Nigel Nicolson, Robert Holmes, and Edwin Peacock. The collection also includes writings by Simmons and others; a diary by Sarah Combs; scrapbooks and folders of printed material and clippings, including articles and reviews by and about Simmons; legal and financial papers; photographs; video and sound recordings; and other material relating to Simmons' personal life and career as a writer. Photograph albums include views of Sissinghurst Castle.

The collection also contains 28 electronic files of an unpublished manuscript, WANTING MAGIC, by J. Theodore Ellis, including his unpublished notes, footnotes, and reflections based on the works of Hall-Simmons and related individuals, as well as professional studies of transsexualism and sexual identity. There is also a printout of selected pages of the manuscript. Also includes Ellis' copy of Simmons' GREAT WHITE OWL OF SISSINGHURST.
