A database of the case files and application materials held in the
Archive of the Royal Literary Fund (1790-1939).
The Royal Literary Fund is a charitable organisation established in
1790 to aid writers of published works who are in financial
difficulties. Between 1790 and 1939, more than 3,600 authors and
dependants applied to the Fund for assistance.
The free text search box below covers all of these records; searches
using names are likely to find relevant material.
The additional options below the box can be used either in
conjunction with or instead of the free text search. The physical
