Midland Union, 1886-1968
Biographical / Historical
At one time the Midland Union covered most of the counties in the West and East Midlands. Separate provincial Areas were established in 1930, after which the name Midland Union continued to be used for the West Midlands Area only. However, by the 1950s the Midland Union only comprised 58 constituencies in the West Midlands. As a result this provincial Area decided to adopt the name used for it by Conservative Central Office since the 1931 - the West Midlands Area. (Derived from note included with the 28 April 1950 meeting Minutes of the Midland Union Finance and General Purposes Committee.) Birmingham University Library also contains 130 items of miscellaneous correspondence for the Midland Union 1888-1944. Please refer to their Library Catalogue 1985.
