We are indebted to Nicolas Hawkes for donating the Jacquetta Hawkes Archive to the University of Bradford, and for his continued support for our work, and to Dr Christine Finn, Writer-Fellow in the J.B. Priestley Library and Jacquetta’s biographer, for her role in bringing the Archive to us and in promoting Jacquetta world-wide.
