Reference Code: GBR/0014/CHAR 1/373

Scope and Contents

From the Series:

These are the papers relating to the activities of WSC as a private person. They include correspondence with or about his family and friends on non-public topics, and papers relating to his personal, financial and legal affairs, and his social life. For the purposes of this arrangement, his activities in the Regular and Territorial Armies, in Cuba and during the Boer War in South Africa, and as a painter, have been regarded as personal. For the period 1940-1945 material of a personal nature in this sense can also be found in the Private Office (CHAR 20) and Personal Office (CHAR 2) correspondence series which were left largely undisturbed in the new arrangement. Receipts for personal expenditure incurred in his constituencies are placed in this class except those which are noted as belonging to the 'Dundee Fund', and, similarly, some expenditure of a personal kind was originally treated as literary expenses and the documents appear in CHAR 8.
