Signed minutes of three bodies: the Men Candidates Committee 1906-1938 (named the Candidates Committee 1906-June 1921); the Women Candidates Committee 1903-1948 (named the Ladies' Candidates Committee 1903-1913), and the Training Colleges Governing Body 1938-1951 (which succeeded the Training Colleges Committee 1930-1938).
Although the records are limited in detail and require searching, the committee papers make numerous references to individual candidates and, where necessary, can supplement the information available through the training records which suffer extensive gaps.
Further information on the committees involved in the selection and training of candidates is available at sub-fonds level (see AdminHistory CMS/C).
