Immediate Source of Acquisition

The majority of the papers (section A) were presented to the Library in May 1996 by the former Honorary Secretary of FIL, Margaret Gardiner. Her card-index of members (A11) had been given to the Library in 1993. At her request, a further three files were extracted from the papers of J.D. Bernal (Add. 8287) and added to the collection as section B.
