Chamber secretary's papers

Scope and Content

Consist of subject files and general papers containing a mixture of correspondence, newspaper cuttings, circulars, notes, copies etc. kept by the secretary or the assistant secretary, William R Hawkins and his son V W Hawkins. The titles have been supplied from the front of the folder where possible


No obvious filing system could be reconstructed, so the files have been listed in chronological order according to their contents. The material in the folders has been kept in its original order, which is largely, but not always, anti-chronological
