Toeman (E.A.) collection

Edward Armand Toeman, known professionally as E.A. Toeman, was born in England in 1925. He graduated from Cambridge in 1946 and afterwards was employed by the Lord Chancellor's Department as a district judge. He had a lifelong interest in literature and poetry, serving as the editor of Prospect: The Voice of the Younger Generation of Poets, which was published between 1945 and 1950 and featured writers such as Kathleen Raine and Muriel Spark.

This collection contains literary notebooks and a manuscript by the poet Walter Roberts, who was an acquaintance of Toeman's.
