Sharp Intake

CiA staffers Eamonn Canniffe and Andrew Crompton recently attended the conference “Town and Townscape: The Work & Life of Thomas Sharp” at the University of Newcastle. The University Library has an archive of Sharp’s personal papers detailing his campaigns for the replanning of several English towns following the Second World War, and his skirmishes with notable figures such as Denys Lasdun and, rather surprisingly, the young Lord Scarman in which the ‘man of the people’ Sharp had the better of the noted jurist.

Link to the archive, which was listed as September’s Archives HUB collection of the month follow.
