Commonwealth in Focus Slides

Reference Code: GBR/0115/RCS/Y3011GGG
Scope and Contents Collection of 35mm colour slides of countries of the Commonwealth.

Scope and Contents Following Hugh Pearson’s death, the principal recipients of his letters, his mother Mrs Jean Pearson and his youngest sister Ursula Pearson, prepared them for publication along with extracts from his diaries.
