The National Library of Scotland acquired the final tranche of archive material by renowned author, artist, and playwright, Alasdair Gray. The Library’s collection of Gray’s material is comprehensive, including literary and personal items. After Gray’s passing, the Library worked with his Estate to secure public access to his work. Gray’s son, Andrew, stated that his father would be pleased that his collection remains in Scotland and is accessible to the public. The archive includes manuscript and screenplay drafts for ‘Poor Things’ and extensive correspondence with publishers, writers, and artists. Dr. Colin McIlroy, the manuscripts curator, noted that Gray’s work is deeply embedded in Glasgow and that providing public access to his archive ensures his legacy lives on.
