Philip Hobsbaum (1932-2005) was a lecturer in the Faculty of Arts at Queen’s University Belfast from 1962 to 1966. During that period he established the Belfast Creative Writing Group, or “The Group”. Members included James Simmons, Stewart Parker, Bernard McClaverty, Michael Longley and Seamus Heaney.
Hobsbaum donated a folder of material, written by the group between 1963 and 1966, which is held in Special Collections (Miscellaneous Manuscripts MS1/204).
