Another new apartheid archive online

We recently announced announce that we had added a PDF version of the catalogue of the Marion Friedmann papers to the Senate House Libraries archives catalogue, a collection which included material regarding the Liberal Party of South Africa, of which she was a founder member.

We're very pleased today, to announce another new PDF catalogue has been made available.

The Peter Hjul papers were donated by Peter Hjul, was was active in the Liberal Party of South Africa and chaired the Cape Provincial Division. He also chaired the editorial board of the radical fortnightly "Contact" and was also the editor of the South African Shipping News and Fishing Industry Review. He and his family were harassed by South African security forces and emigrated to the United Kingdom in 1965, where Peter Hjul continued his career as a journalist.

The collection comprises material on the Liberal Party of South Africa and civil rights, and includes meeting minutes, correspondence and open letters, posters announcing meetings, election leaflets, various reports and nine issues of Contact, dating from October 1964 to June 1965.
