The collection comprise research notes, correspondence, press cuttings and publications, photographs, etc., together with copies of national and local newspapers and journals (which include references to tennis and rackets), which Lord Aberdare assembled in the course of his lifelong research into the history of (real) tennis and rackets, on which he has published the two standard works, The Story of Tennis (1959) and The Willis Faber Book of Tennis and Rackets (1980). Some of the papers were assembled by his father, the 3rd Baron Aberdare (1885-1957), the distinguished athlete, who, with E.B. Noel, was author of First Steps to Rackets (1926) and was editor of the Lonsdale Library volume on Rackets, Squash Rackets, Tennis, Fives and Badminton (1933). The papers were principally assembled over the period since 1932.
