British photographic history

Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history

I am looking for anyone who knows what might have happened to the paper archives and/or photograph collections of Frederick Evans.  I know that many images in his collection went to the Royal Photographic Society and are now in Bradford and some of the images ended up at the George Eastman House.   But I know that he owned some images that I have been unable to track down.  I was wondering if perhaps they were still with the family or if a particular dealer/collector/institution has a substantial collection that I am unaware of.  I am interested primarily in his collection of prints by other artists and his correspondence with F. Holland Day.  Any leads or contacts would be appreciated.

I have met a photographic dealer in Santa Fe, I think named Smith,  who has some  prints and papers. There is a retired successful photographer named Ford now living in Woodbridge who has Evans's notes for lectures to Camera Clubs. Dr David Cameron ARPS of Alabama has a number of Evans prints which he displayed at the Historical Group's Conference on the History of Church Photography. There is a record in the PhotoHistorian. There is the ARPS Mr Jones, whose wife was Lucy Jones FRPS, who had numbers of Evans prints under his bed in Catford, These went to a nephew when he died.
