Simon, John Allsebrook, 1873-1954 (1st Viscount Simon and politician)
- Existence: 1873 - 1954
Found in 5 Collections and/or Records:
Oxford dinner was excellent: Simon "took occasion to break ground for the Liberals in protest against the Ruhr occupation."
Thanks for letter; will be bringing out book called 'Three speeches on the General Strike'; remarks on strike
Congratulating Money on his knighthood: 'I shall have the privilege as Sec. of State of presenting you for knightly accolade.'; autograph
The collection, though small, is interesting as no other papers appear to have been left by Hore-Belisha. It comprises letters, diaries, some photographs and documents (mainly copies) covering most of Hore-Belisha's career but concentrating on his most important position as War Minister from 1937-1939 and particularly the events surrounding his dismissal by Neville Chamberlain.
