Description
This collection contains a mix of formats about a wide range of projects in Sir Patrick's career, notably a large amount of material relating to the Star Trek TV and movie series, X-men and Blunt Talk.

Some of the collection was amassed by the "Patrick Stewart Research Library" (and also possibly by the "International Audience Alliance for Patrick Stewart") and later purchased by Patrick Stewart. The International Audience Alliance for Patrick Stewart was an officially sanctioned fan club, active by 1990 until the late 1990s.
it was associated with the Patrick Stewart Research Library located in a domestic home in West Islip, New York which was a volunteer, non-profit, fan-run resource started in 1966. The Library was a reference resource freely open by appointment, and offered photocopying and audio/visual listening/viewing facilities for the purposes of "public outreach and education regarding theatre arts and the career of actor Patrick Stewart"

The IAAPS and the PSRL collected and made available "unique photographs, unusual theatrical memorabilia, many newspaper and magazine articles, as well as numerous video and audio tapes of Mr. Stewart's work in stage, screen, television and radio", as stated on a flyer of 1966.
