Language of Materials
The papers in this section were arranged by Arthur Marder (biographer of 1st Lord Fisher). When deposited, most of the papers were stored in numbered packets. These divisions have been preserved, this is the reason that some files comprise several parts.
Other Finding Aids
The papers have been catalogued and copies of the catalogue are available at Churchill Archives Centre and at the National Register of Archives.
Immediate Source of Acquisition
The papers were given to Churchill Archives Centre by 3rd Lord Fisher in October 2001 with the exception of FISR 15/4/4 (the original of which has only been provisionally deposited at Churchill Archives Centre) and 15/2/2/3.
Section 15 of the papers was catalogued by Natalie Adams of Churchill Archives Centre in 2002. Although there is much overlap between the contents of FISR 15 and the rest of the collection, FISR 15 has been kept as a separate section as the papers were collected by a different individual and were not deposited at Churchill Archives Centre until much later than the original deposit.
Fisher, Cecil Vavasseur, 1868-1955, 2nd Baron of Kilverstone
