  • Eleanor Marx and Edith Lanchester

    Colleagues,
    I have completed work on my Ripper novel and have begun researching my second book about Eleanor Marx, her lover, Edward Aveling, and her secretary, Edith Lanchester. I write to ask your help in locating information about them. Specifically, I need to find the inquest report of Eleanor's death, together with any obituaries. I am also looking for newspaper articles about Lanchester's involuntary commitment to a mental institution. Not knowing London newspapers well, and living in America, I am uncertain how to troll those files for such information. Can anyone point me toward the needed documents. As always, I appreciate your help.

                  Part of this book is online, and in the notes at the end there is a list of newspapers which reported the inquest :
