Bailey Archive

Sir Harold Bailey’s correspondence files comprise letters from over 2000 correspondents dating from ca. 1928 until his death in 1996. They include all the major orientalists of his day, among them Sven Hedin, Sir Marc Aurel Stein, Sten Konow, Sir John Marshall etc. These are currently in the process of being catalogued. Bailey’s collection of Persian manuscripts is also being catalogued by Maria Szuppe. A catalogue of Harold Bailey’s collection of coins, with digital images, will also appear on the web, as will Mary Boyce’s Zoroastrian slides and photographs.

The Wilson archive of photographs is now being prepared for publication as a digital database on this site. This work is being carried out by Mrs Marti Wilson, a member of the American Friends of the AIIT. A catalogue of the Allchin photoarchive is also being prepared for publication on the web, along with a selection of images from the collection.
