Rio Tinto Finance and Exploration Limited

Correspondence and papers, 1969-73, concerning Emrys Bennett Owen's work as a freelance surveyor for the Rio Tinto Finance and Exploration Ltd in connection with its proposed mineral exploration in the Mawddach estuary, in the Barmouth and Dolgellau areas, in Coed-y-Brenin Forest, Dolgellau, and Cwm Hermon, Llanfachreth. There are also papers deriving from work undertaken by EBO in relation to the following properties: Cae'r Ffynnon, Dolgellau; Blaenlliw Isaf and Blaenlliw Uchaf, Llanuwchllyn; Nantddu and Amnodd farms, Llanycil; Coed Mawr, Llanfachreth; and the activities of the Merioneth Mining Company.

The Fatigue

The series comprises twelve files of manuscript and typescript drafts of the poem 'The Fatigue' and its introduction, proofs, and scripts for a broadcast reading.
'The Fatigue' was privately printed by friends for David Jones' 70th birthday, on 1 November 1965. David Jones has dated the introduction to the poem August 18th 1965 on page 26. The BBC Third Programme (produced by Douglas Cleverdon) recorded David Jones reading this poem in March 1965. David Jones notes in these files that the poem was 'read on June 3rd 1964 for television' and 'read on Oct. 15 1964 for Brit[ish] Council for Harvard' [library of recordings]. It appears that this 'fragment' was written, or adapted from an earlier work, by David Jones following a request for material to be recorded.

Cleverdon, Douglas


Correspondence, 1860-1953, mostly comprising letters to John Rhŷs from fellow researchers, friends and family. They mainly relate to his interests in philology, grammar, history, archaeology, ethnology and folklore, and his research concerning inscriptions, including ogam inscriptions. The correspondents range from renowned specialists in various fields to local antiquarians who assisted with the task of recording inscriptions on stones. Some letters are addressed to other individuals, and were probably enclosed with letters addressed to John Rhŷs.
