Sir Malcolm Bradbury (1932-2000) was Professor at the University of East Anglia's former School of English and American Studies (EAS) from 1970-1994. He co-founded (with Sir Angus Wilson) and later directed the MA course in Creative Writing. Bradbury was a prolific writer of novels, short stories, literary criticism and television plays and series. Bradbury is probably best known for his fictional work The History Man (1975).
Bradbury's papers are held within two separate collections. The first relates to the MA Creative Writing Course and is referenced as LIT/CW. Papers relating to Bradbury's writing and his Professorship at UEA, including courses on American studies and the history of the school of EAS, can be found in series UEA/BRAD.
Notably in series UEA/BRAD are film, radio and television scripts including popular British crime series A Touch of Frost, Dalziel and Pascoe, and Kavanagh QC. Also included is a large collection of newspaper and magazine cuttings spanning Bradbury's writing career with some having appeared in the Nottinghamshire Guardian shortly after Bradbury's 17th birthday.
