The Collection

The Society's Research Library contains some 1300 items; books by Kipling, books and articles relating to his life and works, collections of press cuttings, photographs, relevant memorabilia, and a complete run of the Kipling Journal. It has just been moved to Haileybury (Hertford SG13 7NU), the independent school from which many young men went out to join the old East India Company, and with which - in various stages - Kipling's school, United Service College, was amalgamated.
