Lucy Russell Fonds (Online Exhibit)

Lucy Russell Fonds (Online Exhibit)

Lucy Catherine Russell was the granddaughter of Bertrand Russell. She is best known for her tragic death at the age of 26, but her papers contain a wealth of information about the life of a young woman developing and negotiating her ideas about the world in the presence of her famous forebearer, Bertrand Russell. This exhibit, curated by Gillian Dunks, the archivist responsible for processing Lucy’s papers, features excerpts from Lucy’s correspondence, diaries, and artwork.
