Dylan Thomas Digital Collection Launched Online

  • Jun 2, 2021

A digital collection of manuscripts and photographs of Welsh poet and writer Dylan Thomas held at the Harry Ransom Center is now online thanks to an international collaboration with Swansea University in Wales.

Jointly funded by the Ransom Center and Swansea University with the support of the Dylan Thomas Trust, accessibility to the author’s archive will expand to include this freely available digital collection, opening the study of his literary works and creative process to a global audience.

“This initiative promises to deepen our understanding of Dylan Thomas’ creative process and lead to new insights into his poetry and other writings,” said Stephen Enniss, the Betty Brumbalow Director of the Harry Ransom Center at UT Austin. “We are grateful for this collaboration with Swansea University and grateful, too, to the Dylan Thomas Trust, which has made it possible for us to share the collection with his readers everywhere.”
