Piero Sraffa’s papers and correspondence, held in the Wren Library of Trinity College, Cambridge, are to be made available online in their entirety.

The contents of the Sraffa Archive is being released sequentially. The first instalment, Sraffa’s diaries from 1927 to 1977, and the journal of his visit to the People’s Republic of China in October 1954, are now available for consultation at:

As the work of digitisation proceeds, more of the material will appear online.

Under the direction of Giancarlo de Vivo and Murray Milgate, with the collaboration of Jonathan Smith (Archivist and Modern Manuscripts Cataloguer at Trinity College) and the staff of the Wren Library, the project is planned for completion in 2017.

The project would not have been possible without the endorsement and encouragement of Sraffa’s Literary Executor, Lord Eatwell. Generous support from Trinity College and the Cambridge Political Economy Society Trust is gratefully acknowledged.
