Papers of the Anti-Slavery Society (accessions 1941-1951) and of Kathleen, Lady Simon, 1791-1828, 1847, 1890-1953
The collection described here consists, in the main, of papers coming into the Society's office between 1941 and 1951, but they did not necessarily originate strictly between those dates. There are also some notable exceptions of papers that really belong with the earlier collection; these are mostly papers that were the property of Sir John Harris, Organising and Parliamentary Secretary to the Society, and are described in sections A and D below.
- Creation: 1791-1828, 1847, 1890-1953
Language of Materials
The papers have been sorted and listed following much the same arrangement as that used for the original collection, although some of the sections used then, such as section C which consisted of nineteenth century letters, do not apply here. Thus in section A there are photographs and proofs of blocks for reproducing in journals; in section D the series of twentieth century letters is continued with the correspondence of Sir John Harris and of C. W. W. Greenidge; section G consists of the papers most conveniently arranged according to the territory or subject with which they deal, and section H has more papers connected with the work of the Committee for the Welfare of Africans in Europe.
