A new Desmond Bagley archive collection has been established at the Priaulx Library in Guernsey. Designed to complement the Desmond Bagley collection held at the Howard Gotlieb Archival Research Center in Boston U.S.A., the new collection will provide a link between the Bailiwick and Boston giving islanders and visitors a chance to view Bagley material in the Bailiwick of Guernsey.
