Abstract:

The papers of author Gordon Langley Hall, for the most part letters from his mother, Marjorie Hall (Ticehurst) Copper, describing her work on the household staff of Sir Harold Nicolson and his wife, Victoria Mary Sackville-West, Lady Nicolson, in Cranbrook, Kent, England. The letters concern family news and local gossip, Lady Nicolson's death, the family affairs and writings of Nigel Nicolson, and Marjorie Copper's views of events in the United States. Also a letter from Lady Nicolson to Gordon Langley Hall containing information on her background.

The collection also contains a number of items relating to a series of sex change treatments begun in 1967 at the Gender Identity Clinic of Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore, Md., at the conclusion of which Gordon Langley Hall adopted the name Dawn Pepita Langley-Hall. There are several clippings dealing with the sex change and an announcement of the forthcoming marriage of Langley-Hall to John Paul Simmons.
