Scope and Content

These volumes of press cuttings contain contributions made by CEM to the Guardian from the year he joined the newspaper to the year of his death; articles dating from 1925-8 were written during his retirement. There are no contributions dating from 1915-18 when CEM was serving in the Army.

A list of all the leading articles written by CEM for the Guardian, along with the date on which they appeared, can be found in the printed version of the catalogue and may be used to locate the volumes in which specific leaders appear.


Some of the volumes contain a small number of articles written as contributions to other publications, or Guardian material which is either undated or dates from a year other than that of the majority of the cuttings in the volume. These volumes have been listed under the predominant date with a note of any material which either does not conform to this date or which was not printed in the Guardian. In the few cases where articles, or sections of articles, were written by journalists other than CEM, the fact has been marked beside the relevant cuttings by CEM himself.
