Welcome to The Lyon Archive. Members of the Anglo-Jewish Lyon family created professional and creative lives in England, Jamaica, Australia, and the United States as scholars, poets, diarists, editors, fiction writers, and philanthropists. As a public humanities project, The Lyon Archive represents a collaboration among scholars, University of Oregon students, and member of the Lyon family who have donated time and artifacts to this site. Like all archives, the pages, items, and projects published herein offer a partial narrative about the ordinary literary lives of members of the Lyon family, told through sound, visual objects, maps, and movies. This is a space created for interpretation, dissent, and wonder. Please see the "About" page for further details on the archive's design and scope.
