Graham Greene attended Balliol College in the 1920s before embarking on a career as a writer and publisher. Josephine Reid was Greene’s secretary 1959 – 1992. Despite those thirty-three years working alongside him, she makes only a footnote appearance in his official biography. This public exhibition of her letters, books and papers from Graham Greene, showcased in Balliol’s award winning Historic Collection building, tells the story of how Josephine Reid put the secret into secretary and reveals the working practices of one of the twentieth-century’s best known writers.
