Kim Stallwood’s diaries
The Stallwood Collection includes a minimum of 574 organisation files. Some groups have more than one file dedicated to them. The number of files is dependent upon the volume of material on each group. There are files on at least 500 organisations. The material in the files dates mostly from the 1970s and is organised largely in chronological order. Much of this material will be rare. Whereas the material is from organisations from around the world, a significant amount of it is from the British animal welfare/rights movement in the 1970s and 1980s. The files are organised in alpha order. They are kept in metal four-drawer filing cabinets. The material consists of brochures, flyers, posters, mailings, newsletters, magazines, and other printed materials. There is also additional material to be filed into the organisation files.
Noteworthy files among the files include:
- 17 files from the British Union for the Abolition of Vivisection in the 1980s during its period of ‘radicalisation.’
- 11 files from Coordinating Animal Welfare in the 1970s and 1980s, which includes material from many local groups, various grassroots initiatives, and national organisations as well as correspondence with key figures. CAW hosted bimonthly public meetings in London attracting some 200 attendees and published a bimonthly bulletin of news, updates, and activities.
- Several anti-animal rights organisations, including Fur Breeders Association of the UK; Cosmetic, Toiletry and Fragrance Association; and Incurably Ill for Animal Research.
- Several files from materials gathered during trips to the USA in 1980 and 1981 made by Kim Stallwood (e.g., Mobilization for Animals/Conference 1981).
- 28 files from People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, which includes primarily material produced during Kim Stallwood’s tenure as the organisation’s first Executive Director from 1987 to 1992.

These are files established and maintained for some 20 years as part of the research to the writing of various published and yet-to-be published projects. They are organised by primary subject area (agriculture; animal rights movement; companion animals; animal behaviour/general; animal behaviour/by animal; human-animal studies general; human-animal studies/by animal; research, testing and education; and wildlife) with files in each one (e.g., animal and right wing politics; direct action 2003; animals and war). There are more than 100 files. The contents in each file varies and includes press clippings, correspondence, email, publications, and so on.

In 2008 an inventory of the People Files in the collection was taken. The number of individuals who each had at least one file (a few had more than one) is 127. The information and materials contained in these files varies depending upon their status and circumstances. For example, the file for Carol Adams, the ecofeminist author, includes corresponding between her and Kim Stallwood. The file for Noble prize winning author John Galsworthy (1867-1933) includes pro-animal pamphlets he wrote. Some of the personal correspondence in particular files will need to be embargoed for 50 years.
