Papers of the MP and political activist John Walton Newbold. The collection is currently unlisted, so any account of the contents is provisional. The collection includes a typescript of Newbold's unpublished memoirs, as well as some handwritten notes and correspondence on his career in the 1930s. Unpublished essays including 'Essays on the Catholic Church and politics'; notes on the armament industry, including typescripts for an intended book, Armaments and European Industry , diplomacy and grand strategy, papers relating to the (Macmillan) Committee on Finance and Industry, 1931, including Newbold's own memoranda; articles, pamphlets and cuttings collected by Newbold; letters to Newbold; notebooks on industrial capitalism and finance and a typescript on history of American capitalism.
Perhaps the most interesting part of the collection is Newbold's memoirs, which has been reassembled into its original order; see Robert Duncan, "The Papers of John Walton Turner Newbold, 1888-1943: an introductory guide", Bulletin of the John Rylands University Library of Manchester , vol. 76, no. 2 (1994), pp. 195-203, for further details concerning its content.
