Conroy Collection: Bibliography

The following works provide useful background to the various facets of the Conroy Papers. Some of them are based in part on the collection, but it should be borne in mind that anyone visiting Balliol to consult it before 1975 would have seen only the material now coded 9A-C and 10. The rest was until then still in the care of the Palmer family, and only DM Stuart seems to have known about it and had access to it.
