Folders 1-8 contain Waterfield's correspondence with Tambimuttu and financial materials concerning the revival of Poetry London/Apple Magazine.
Folders 9-14 in Box 1 and 1-5 in Box 2 contain extensive Waterfield correspondence with Jane Williams and others, as well as other records concerning the compiling and publishing of the festschrift Tambimuttu: Bridge between Two Worlds. This is following Tambi's death in 1983.
Folders 6-14 in Box 2 contain records concerning Waterfield's role with Stanley Revell in planning the centenary exhibit celebrating T.S. Eliot, held at the University Church of St. Mary the Virgin, Oxford, in May, 1988. Revell was widely considered to have one of the more complete collections of Eliot books, and Waterfield played a key role in selecting books to exhibit, publishing a keepsake volume for the event, and selling portions of Revell's collection in order to fund the exhibit. Information is also included here concerning Revell's death and the subsequent sale of his remaining collection. Revell's will is contained in the correspondence section.
