Scope and arrangement
The Beatrice Lillie papers consist of clippings, correspondence, contracts and photographs. The collection is primarily from the 1960s and documents her professional life at that time though there is some correspondence from 1970 to 1982. Of special note is the file on the television program The Pruitts of Southamptonin which she was scheduled to be a regular. This however, was never finalized. There are some photographs in the collection including publicity photographs from her appearance at a charity fundraiser for the Jewish General Hospital in June 1954.
