Announcing Another New Collection of Schreiner Letters!

We at Whites Writing Whiteness are very pleased to announce another new collection of Olive Schreiner letters is now available. These letters come from the Winifred de Villiers Collection in the JS Gerlicke Library, University of Stellenbosch. As a keen supporter of women’s suffrage, de Villiers’s collection includes correspondence by Olive Schreiner and Emily Hobhouse among others. There are just two Schreiner letters on Women’s Enfranchisement matters here – but what interesting letters they are! They also have the great benefit of adding to the picture given in other letters written in the same period concerning Schreiner’s high profile role in the Cape Women’s Enfranchisement League.

Go to and click on the ‘New Letters’ tab for more detail and the letters themselves.
