Immediate Source of Acquisition
It is unclear whether the albums were compiled by or for Sir Robert. The albums were loaned to Churchill Archives Centre, in September 1971, by Sir Robert's great-nephew Sir John Mowbray.
This collection (fonds) level description and catalogue were prepared by Louise King, March 2004, using information from the papers themselves and from Mowbray's entry in "Who Was Who 1897-1996" (A&C Black).
