So far there are only three, of which this is one. The Robert Graves Society Information Centre is the web vehicle of the Robert Graves Society. The Society was set up during the Centenary conference in August 1995, largely due to the enthusiasm and efforts of Robert Davis. The main vehicle of dissemination for the Robert Graves Society is however the new journal Gravesiana (1996); the October 1996 re-dedication of the Robert Graves Room at St. Johns College, which contains five lithographs illustrating Graves poems by his collaborator Paul Hogarth, was not recorded on the Information Centre web site.

The Focus on Robert Graves and His Contemporaries site was set up in the summer of 1996 by Richard Schumaker of the University of Maryland, and co-editor of the paper edition with Patrick Quinn. His plans included the intention to broaden the scope of the journal to include a more European perspective. The editorial board moved to support a counter proposal by Patrick Quinn, to found a new journal called Gravesiana. The electronic edition of Focus on Robert Graves and his Contemporaries is thus the first complete edition of the journal to appear on the web, as well as the very last to appear in any format.
The Robert Graves Archive (where you currently are) grew out of the electronic database feasibility study conducted in 1994-5 at St. John's College Oxford, where the author of these pages was Research Assistant and Archivist to the Trust. Its purpose is to publicise and develop the resources which resulted from that study, and to map and archive Graves related references on the web. Originally published on http://sable.ox.ac.uk, now home to the Oxford Text Archive, in March 1996. It lived for 28 months at www.presence.co.uk before moving to homes.ukoln.ac.uk in October 1998.
