New Bertrand Russell Archives and Research Centre Opens

The Bertrand Russell Archives and Research Centre at McMaster University has opened. While McMaster University acquired the Russell Archives 50 years ago, and has had a Research Centre  focused on Russell since 2000, the collection is now in what the university newspaper, The Silhouette, reports is its own “state of the art facility.”

The Centre houses over 250,000 original documents written by Russell, over 3000 books from his own personal library, nearly 4000 volumes of his published works, as well as photos and artifacts, such as his writing desk and armchair, The Silhouette reports.

There’s more information about the Centre here and here.

And here’s a television interview with Russell.
