Abstract:

The Robinson Library at the University of Newcastle upon Tyne presents information about the library's Gertrude Bell collection. Bell (1868-1926) was an archaeologist and traveler born in Washington, Durham, England. As a female traveler at the turn of the century who did not stick to standard patterns of Western travel, Gertrude Bell's life and experience offer researchers a unique look through Western eyes at the world, especially the Middle East. Her knowledge of the country and its tribes thereby gained made her a prime target for recruitment by British Intelligence during the First World War, later, as a Political Officer, and then as Oriental Secretary to the High Commissioner in Baghdad, she became a king-maker in the new state of Iraq, which she had helped to create. Includes over 1,600 letters to her parents, 16 diaries, 7,000 photographs, and other miscellaneous items.
