Papers relating to their work in European Service of the BBC during World War II.
The collection includes scrapbooks containing photographs and press cuttings; family and professional correspondence; speeches and articles; official documents relating to Foreign Office and Suez Canal Company business; and draft notes for Cadogan's autobiography. A series of frank personal diaries with almost daily entries cover Cadogan's career and private life from his appointment as Minister to China in 1933 to his retirement.
The papers cover Jacob's adult life from his early army career, his work as Assistant Military Secretary to the War Cabinet and as Director General of the BBC, to his retirement where he remained active in many important public services. Also included are some Boer War papers which were kept by Jacob's father-in-law.
