General Secretary's correspondence with individuals and organisations

Scope and Content

The earlier habit of keeping separate files for each correspondent (see 4BVA/C below) was replaced by a rigorous contemporaneity under Richard Russell as General Secretary, and each file contains a very miscellaneous collection of documents. Correspondents include the Association for Moral and Social Hygiene (later the Josephine Butler Society) including minutes; the Young Women's Christian Association as administrators of International Travellers' Aid, including minutes and statistics; Liverpool Vigilance Association, the National Vigilance Association of Scotland and the Public Morality Council; the Association of Registered English Language Schools Welfare Committee, the International Catholic Girls Society Budget House Executive Committee, and the National Council of Women (minutes and correspondence); Anti-Slavery Society, St. Joan's Alliance, Mothers' Union, National Council for the Unmarried Mother and her Child, Salvation Army, Women's Fellowship of the Methodist Church, Aid to European Refugees, Standing Conference of Overseas Friendship Associations and others. Individual correspondents include Mrs Margaret Bligh, Miss DM Retchford, Miss DOG Peto, HJ Chuter Ede, Miss Florence Barry, Lady Henriques, Marjorie Lady Nunburnholme, Dame Joan Vickers, Miss Mervyn Pike and others.
