We are pleased to announce that the archives, previously held by the McDougall Trust, including the earliest records of the Proportional Representation Society and the Electoral Reform Society, have been transfered to the Modern Records Centre, University of Warwick. This large and varied collection will need a significant amount of resource to make it fully available for research as much of it is unlisted. The McDougall Trust and the Modern Records Centre are exploring avenues for additional funding and support to assist with sorting, arranging, cataloguing and promoting this significant collection. This is likely to take some time so please get in touch with us if you are interested in this collection. You can also find more information about the collection here.Link opens in a new window
