Howard Carter bequeathed most of his estate to Phyllis Walker (1897-1977), his favourite niece, who had spent a season with him in Luxor. Carter's estate included the archaeological records stored in his flat in London, and following the advice of the Egyptologists Alan H. Gardiner (1879-1963) and Percy E. Newberry (1869-1949), who had both been on the Tutankhamun excavation team, she donated the documentation with associated copyright to the Griffith Institute, the centre for Egyptology at the University of Oxford, 'as a memorial to him and his work'.
