Bertrand Russell Archives

Located at McMaster University since 1968, the Bertrand Russell archives holds a large amount of Russell's correspondence, manuscripts, tapes, and photographs. The online version of the archive offers a number of resources of interest to researchers and students in Russell Studies. The highlight of these is BRACERS (Bertrand Russell Archives Catalogue Entry and Retrieval System), a database of 64,000 records of correspondence between Russell and over 29,000 people and groups, searchable by a number of fields. Returns include sender and receiver, date, and in some cases, notes. The full text of some letters is also available online. A separate listing of the people and groups corresponding and the number of letters to and from each one is also available. Additional resources at the site include a gallery of high-resolution annotated images, a bibliography, tables of contents for the Russell Journal (1971-present), a listing of forthcoming works on Russell, information on the Russell Editorial Project, a discussion list, quotations, and links to related sites, among others. Despite its awkward layout, this site is a necessary first stop for anyone interested in one of the 20th century's most influential liberal thinkers.
