Papers of Pearl Craigie

Pearl Craigie (1867-1906) was the author of a number of plays and novels under the pseudonym John Oliver Hobbes. She was President of the Society of Women Journalists in 1895 and also a member of the Anti-Suffrage League.

The collection comprises letters written by Craigie during the period 1898-1905 to Bishop W.F. Brown, who at the time was a Roman Catholic priest in charge of a 'slum' parish in South London, and two scrapbooks, one relating to an American visit 1905-1906 and the other containing cuttings about her death and funeral in 1906.
