The below listings contain guidelines for items wanted as well as a selection of specific items.

The Archives does not have the following:

Louise Morgan Inside Yourself (1954)

The Archives contains many articles on the Technique published in newspaper and magazines in the UK. There are, however, very few from abroad. For example, the Archives has very few articles for the general public from USA. AmSAT keeps a comprehensive biography of these. Go to, choose “Media relations” and then bibliography for downloading a pdf of their bibliography.

The Archives have almost no articles by pupils of F. M. Alexander. These were mainly published in the period 1920-1955 in medical journals in England.

The Constructive Teaching Centre newsletters (1970s) - all issues
The Alexander Review vol. 1 nos. 2-3, vol. 2 nos. 2-3, vol. 3 and vol. 4

The Archives have very few theses and other degree works on the Technique.
