The Papers of Sir Isaac Holden and his family are among the most popular Special Collections at the University of Bradford. Sir Isaac was a West Riding inventor and successful industrialist who became an M.P. The Papers are rich in detail of the wool industry and social customs of the time and include information about the Holden factories in France and about Sir Isaac’s home, Oakworth House in Keighley. A new and (we hope) more user-friendly edition of the Holden papers handlist is now available on the Archive web page. It includes some letters and ephemera received recently.
