King’s College London holds nearly 5 million archival items, including designated military collections (LHCMA) and the College Archives (institutional archives and private papers acquired or created by staff and others to support teaching and research). Main literary strengths lie in twentieth century poetry: collections include the archives and library of Professor Eric Mottram (1924-1995), a leading advocate of Beat and concrete poetry; Professor Jeremy Adler’s collection of English and European concrete poetry; the archives of Modern Poetry in Translation; the archives and library of Miron Grindea (1909-1995), founder-editor of the Adam International Review, and the archives of author Maureen Duffy.
