Scope and Content

This collection contains illustrated magazines and paperback books about Diana, Princess of Wales.  It was assembled by Elizabeth Janes Peterson and her daughter Julia Catherine Peterson both before and after the death of Princess Diana. Elizabeth Peterson donated this collection to the University Archives in December 2009. 

While some of these publications are widely held, some of the special commemorative pieces, especially those published in Great Britain, are likely relatively scarce.
