I thought that the Aldeburgh negatives had been lost. Glad to know thay were not. I’d be happy to have a print of the one shown on your website: Kurt Hutton with camera 7″x5″ or thereabouts.
KH was my father, and you may wonder at the difference in our names. His passport and his Press Card (both of which I have) give his name as Kurt Hutten. I think that the credit stamp “Credit Kurt Hutton” got it wrong and the name stuck. If you find Kurt Hutten on the web, that would be his greatgrandson.
I worked on Red Weekly and Socialist Challenge in the 1970s. I am interested to find out if the Report/IFL archive is available to research from. What happened to it after IFL closed?
As I say on my personal website, the archive is safely stored and I’m working on it slowly and trying to scan in a cross section of the vast amount of material there that accurately reflects what lies there is in its entirety. Once that is done – and it is a long process – it is hoped to use the scanned photos from the archive to try to get funding so that the whole library, Report & I.F.L, may once again become an accessible resource.
In the meantime, if there is anything in particular that you require for your research purposes, let me know and if possible I can trace it for you. Stefano
