Scores, letters and other papers mainly from Thomas Pitfield to Canon Ridgway. In the main the papers relate to Thomas Pitfield's morality play, 'Adam and the Creatures', which was published in 1968. It appears that Maurice Ridgway gave Pitfield advice on the work and the finished work has been dedicated to Ridgway by Pitfield.
