Scope and Content

The Consumers' Association began life as the Association for Consumer Research Ltd in 1957, changing its name in 1958. Solly Zuckerman was a vice-president of the company from its origin until his death.

File SZ/CA/1 consists chiefly of correspondence but also includes: a copy of the company's Memorandum and Articles of Association; some newsletters, circulars, and minutes of annual general meetings; and copies of the 1972-1973 and 1976-1977 annual reports.

File SZ/CA/2 relates to the establishment and work of a sister organisation, the Advisory Centre for Education (ACE). After initially refusing because of his position as a civil servant, Zuckerman did accept the invitation to become one of ACE's vice-presidents and actively supported its efforts to raise funds for annual summer schools for sixth-formers.

This series also includes material emanating from other associated organisations, such as the Consumers' Association's parent body, the Association for Consumer Research.
