The University of Melbourne Archives is honoured to announce the acquisition of the Germaine Greer archives. The archive documents almost six decades of Professor Greer’s work and achievement, comprising manuscripts and typescripts of published work (and occasionally unpublished work), working papers and research notes, personal and professional correspondence and unsolicited correspondence from members of the public. It also includes files for academic research and publications, including files on women artists and seventeenth-century women poets, awards and honours, photographs, video tapes and numerous audio and digital files. Filling over 150 filing cabinet drawers, it will become one of UMA's largest personal collections.
