Papers of Lord and Lady Pethick-Lawrence

Title Papers from correspondence files A–G
Reference 1
Covering Dates 1918–1961
Extent and Medium 1 box
Content and context

This class, which originally corresponded to the contents of one archival box, contains papers relating to persons and subjects beginning with the letters from A to G, as follows: Viscount Alexander of Hillsborough (1–4), Allen & Unwin Ltd (5–12), the American War Memorial Chapel (13–17), L. S. Amery (18–21), Lord Ammon (22–29), Rajkumari Amrit Kaur (30–39), Louisa Garrett Anderson (40–56), Earl Attlee (57–81), A. K. Azad (82–90), Lord Balfour of Burleigh (91), George Benson (92–94), Phyllis Bentley (95–100), the British-Asian and Overseas Socialist Fellowship (101–103), R. A. Butler (104), Lord Casey (105–118), Viscount Cecil of Chelwood (119–146), Viscount Chandos (147–151), Tara Cherian (152–157), G. D. H. and M. I. Cole (158–169), Lord Coleraine (170–171), Hugh and Ruth Dalton (172–203), Eamon De Valera (204–205), the Duke of Devonshire (206–207), the Earl of Dundee (208–209), Lady Durning-Lawrence (210), the East and West Friendship Council (211–230), the East India Association (231–243), Anthony Eden (244–246), Walter Elliot and Lady Elliot of Harwood (247–250), Lady Elphinstone (251–252), Eton College (253–260), the Fabian Society (261–276), the Field Security Police (277–280), E. M. Forster (281–297), Margery Fry (298–321), Hugh Gaitskell (322–323), Indira Gandhi (324), the Mahatma Gandhi Memorial Fund (325–326), R. C. Ghose (327–340), Thomas Gold (341–356), Victor Gollancz Ltd (357–379), and Sir Ernest and Lady Graham-Little (380–395).

The contents of the original files appear, for the most part, to have been kept together, but 206–207 probably came from the same file as 105–118, and 244–246 may have come from the same file as the documents among 298–321 which relate to the same subject, while 104 and 208–209 came from the same file as 3/120–123. It is likely that the names or subjects assigned to some items – particularly 104 and 208–209 – are not those of the original files.

The letters and cards from E. M. Forster (281–295) are listed in M. Lago, Calendar of the Letters of E. M. Forster (1985), pp. 140–1, where the addressee of 282 is mistakenly identified as Emmeline Pethick-Lawrence.
