Diary of Frederick W. Booth of Hull who may have been related to the activities of the Labour movement in Hull

Administrative / Biographical History

Frederick W. Booth of Hull may have been related to the activities of the Labour movement in Hull. In 1919 he was committed to an asylum and was apparently released without being certified. It appears that in 1924 Booth was again under observations relating to the state of his mental health. These observations appear to be a result of attempts to have him certified following his marriage to 'Bertha'. In December 1924 these observations appear to have come to an end.
