  • Existence: 1890 - 1965

Found in 1 Collection or Record:


The Papers of 1st Viscount Margesson of Rugby

Reference Code: GBR/0014/MRGN
Scope and Contents

Lord Margesson appears to have preserved very few personal papers. As John Hill put it "I found it extremely difficult to come across any record by or about him since almost all his whole political activity as Chief Whip was done on a verbal basis for fairly obvious reasons and no records were kept." (letter to Correlli Barnett, 28 February 1984). The small collection of Margesson's papers comprises correspondence and biographical material.

Dates: 1924 - 1979
Conditions Governing Access: The collection is open for consultation by researchers using Churchill Archives Centre, Churchill College, Cambridge.
