Date: 1924 - 1945

Scope/content:

This class of papers covers that part of WSC's time as Conservative MP for Epping contained in the Chartwell papers (up to 26 July 1945). The remainder of his time as MP (for Woodford) can be found in the post-1945 Churchill papers at CHUR 3.

The papers contain correspondence between WSC's office and local officials, particularly the Vice-Chairman of Epping Division Conservative Association, Sir James Hawkey, discussing standard constituency business (such as WSC's support for various local associations and events). Additionally, they contain many letters from constituents asking for WSC's assistance over pensions, employment and other such personal matters. There are also enquiries on a range of local concerns, including wartime issues such as ARP, evacuation, rationing, the call-up, bomb damage and resulting housing shortages.

The predominant national topics of the period (the India White Paper, the economy, the abdication of Edward VIII, the rise of the Fascist Powers, attitudes towards the League of Nations, the policy of appeasement, etc.) are also represented in the papers. Furthermore, there is material concerning tensions in the Constituency Association over WSC's criticism of the National Government during the thirties.

The correspondence files are generally arranged alphabetically according to the surname of the correspondent, though on occasions letters on a particular subject (i.e. vivisection) have been filed together. Up till 1940 the correspondence files are arranged by year. However, the material for 1940-1945 has been filed together and then subdivided alphabetically for the whole period.
