Content and context

Hughe Knatchbull-Hugessen was born 26 March 1886, in 1912 he married Mary Gordon-Gilmour and they had two daughters. In 1908 he entered the Foreign Office and in 1919 was appointed First Secretary in HM Diplomatic Service. During his career he held the following positions: 1926-1930, Counsellor, HM Embassy, Brussels; 1930-1934, British Minister to the Baltic States; 1934-1936, British Minister in Teheran; 1936-1938, Ambassador in China; 1939-1944, Ambassador in Turkey; 1944-1947, Ambassador in Brussels and Minister to Luxembourg. He retired in 1947and died 21 March 1971.

The volumes of diaries ranging from 1915 to 1952 span his diplomatic career, and the correspondence is mainly of the years 1935-1937. Unfortunately, little exists from the World War II period when he was ambassador at Ankara and the events of Operation Cicero.

This small collection of diaries and correspondence of Sir Hughe Knatchbull-Hugessen was given to the College in November 1976 by Lady Knatchbull-Hugessen.

The arrangement is as follows:

Section 1: diaries

Section 2: correspondence

This collection is owned by Churchill College.
