Harold Nicolson’s Diaries:
why they are important to the historian

* all welcome *
Dr McKibbin was Tutor in History at St John’s 1972-2005 and is now a senior research fellow at St John’s. His research interests are in late nineteenth and twentieth century British history. The diaries of Harold Nicolson (1886-1968) are among the most frequently and thoroughly consulted of Balliol’s modern personal papers collections.
Feel free to bring your lunch. The talk will last no more than half an hour, to allow time for questions and discussion afterwards, and a closer look at some of the Balliol MSS discussed.
