Biographical / Historical

Marjorie Maxse was interviewed as part of an internal enquiry into the organisation of Conservative Central Office, in 1947. At that point her duties as Vice-Chairman were described thus:-

'Miss Maxse is responsible for contacts with outside organisations of particular importance, e.g. the United Nations Organisation. She also has to maintain a liaison between such institutions as Ashridge in its modern form and the Central Office. She is responsible for the maintenance of Foreign, Imperial and Commonwealth contacts; for example, if an important foreign representative or member of some foreign government wishes to see an official of the Conservative Party his first contact should be with Miss Maxse. She also assists her fellow Vice-Chairman in the interviewing of Candidates, and in maintaining contact with Constituencies on this matter.' [Source: shelfmark: CCO 500/1/14].
