Florence Amery, 1904 - 1976

 Sub-Series
Reference Code: GBR/0014/AMEL 6/3

Scope and Contents

This series is particularly notable for the correspondence between LSA and his wife [Adeliza] Florence Amery, or AFA (earlier Florence Greenwood). They wrote to each other virtually every day when they were apart, for instance during the First World War, LSA's absences on political business or AFA's trips into the country for her health. These letters cover a wide range, very often expressing the Amerys' affection for each other and discussing family matters, but also covering LSA's political life and his intelligence work in France and the Balkans, 1914-18. There is also a large amount of general correspondence, including letters to AFA from friends (and many of LSA's political colleagues) and various members of the Greenwood family. Other material includes AFA's diaries (often including loose letters, bills, ephemera etc), her writings and files on her work as chairman of the Indian Comforts Fund during the Second World War.
