Introduction

Scope and Contents

The collection includes correspondence, diaries and notebooks, manuscript drafts, photographs, research files, newspaper cuttings and other published material. They provide a near-comprehensive coverage of Dutton's public career as an author, poet, academic, editor, critic, publisher and journalist. The papers document Dutton's life as 'a man of letters' who was often researching and writing three or four books simultaneously, while at the same time compiling anthologies, editing magazines and attending conferences.

Dutton wrote or edited over 200 books, including poetry, fiction, biographies, art appreciation, art and literary history, travel books, novels for children and critical essays. Twenty of Dutton's published monographs are represented in the collection, along with many of his articles, reviews, short stories, poetry, radio and television scripts, lectures and other writings. The papers also offer considerable insights into Dutton's family life, and more generally, into Australian literary and cultural life in the period 1945-1998.

As a central figure in Australian literary life, Dutton's extensive correspondence stands as a major source for researchers studying the lives and writings of many other notable literary figures. In particular, substantial groups of letters of Patrick White, Russell Drysdale, David Campbell and Alister Kershaw feature amongst the correspondence. The Richard Aldington-Roy Campbell-Alister Kershaw sequence of letters offers valuable insights into Australian links with the European world of letters. Also of interest are papers documenting Dutton's association with the 'Angry Penguins' literary group during the 1940s, when he developed close friendships with the poets Donald Kerr, Paul Pfeiffer, Max Harris and Kershaw, and the painters Sidney Nolan and Arthur Boyd.

Item Descriptions

Series 1. Diaries and notebooks, 1948-92 (Restricted until 2007)

The diaries cover most of Dutton's adult life and record the great diversity of his activities and close association with and impressions of many notable Australians. The ten volumes contain about 1600 pages of small writing. The entries are not daily, but there are relatively few long breaks, except for the periods 1966-69 and 1977. The entries are extremely detailed and record Dutton's activities and conversations, give vivid impressions of people, and contain reflections, ideas and emotional outbursts. There are references to hundreds of well-known names in literature, the arts, politics and high society, in Australia, Britain and America. There are also detailed diaries of his visits to the Soviet Union, Romania, Germany and Singapore. Major crises in Dutton's life, such as his falling-out with Patrick White and the end of his first marriage, are documented. The diaries were a major source for Dutton's autobiography Out in the open (1994).

The notebooks contain notes of Dutton's research, his reading and people whom he met.

With Brian Stonier, Dutton co-founded the paperback arm of Macmillan under the name of Sun Books in 1965. He maintained his association with the company until 1977. The first original title published by Sun Books was Geoffrey Blainey's The tyranny of distance: how distance shaped Australia's history (1966). The first book was to have been Alan Moorehead's Cooper's Creek, but the British hardback publisher and literary agent insisted that the paperback rights be given to a British publisher. Artwork by Lawrence Daws for the cover of Cooper's Creek is included in this series. The Daws design of the Sun Books colophon led to a commercial design by Brian Sudgrove, which all Sun Books have carried ever since.

Series 43. Dutton family papers, 1922-1993

The Dutton family papers have been assembled by Dutton and his family, particularly Dutton's sister, Lady Blackburn. The comprehensive range of material reflects the influential and interesting lives of four generations of a pioneering Australian family. The family papers and photographs extend back to the nineteenth century, and are a useful record of an old landowning family which divided its life between Australia and Europe, including information on old properties and families in South Australia. The photographs are a fine source on the life of the gentry in Australia, and their offspring in Oxford and Europe, as well as early Australian motoring.

Of importance are eight large photograph albums (1901-c.1955) which contain many photographs of family members in England and Europe and of Dutton as a boy. These albums and many other photographs are included in Series 44, Photographs. Other items of interest are 19th century Christmas cards, photographs and cuttings of the first journey across Australia by car by Dutton's father Henry Hampden (H. H) Dutton in 1907-8, diaries of H. H Dutton (1900, 1913, 1918), photographs of Anlaby, a catalogue of native flora on the property (1917), photographs of cars owned by the family and two copies of the catalogue of the Anlaby collection of Australiana sold in 1966.
