New apartheid archive catalogue online

We are pleased to announce that we have added a PDF version of the catalogue of the Marion Friedmann papers to the Senate House Libraries archives catalogue.

Marion Friedmann was born in 1918, and was a founder member of the Liberal Party of South Africa.
The multiracial Liberal Party of South Africa was founded in 1954, and was forced to disband under the Prohibition of Political Interference Act of 1968.
The collection held at the Institute of Commonwealth Studies Library and Archive comprises of material collected on South African politics, chiefly apartheid and the oppression of black South Africans. It includes electioneering material, national statements by the Liberal Party of South Africa on political issues, correspondence, biographical material on Stephen Nkadimeng, Robert Mangaliso Sobukwe, and Duma Nokwe, and various issues of journals Assagai, Contact, Liberal News, and Liberal Opinion. The collection also includes pamphlets and leaflets produced by groups including the ANC, South African Congress of Democrats, and Civil Rights League.
