The small collection of Clement Attlee's papers held at Churchill Archives Centre consists of material relating to Attlee's autobiography (published in 1954), "As It Happened" (Heinemann) and some correspondence.
Lord Attlee deposited this small collection at Churchill College in April 1965.
The first file (marked "Biography Material", now ATLE 1) contained some early drafts of his autobiography and the other (marked "Income Tax", now ATLE 2) contained correspondence with Churchill and other letters. Neither file was arranged in order, but the contents of each had clearly been carefully selected.
