The Hylda Baker archive
Hylda Baker (1905-1986) appears to have kept everything - all her scripts, fan mail, bills and theatrical ephemera - and a large part of her archive was deposited at the Record Office in 1997. When an additional cache of material was offered for sale in 2008 the Friends contributed £500 towards the £3500 purchase price.
Available for everyone to enjoy at Lancashire Archives.
