DescriptionThese are disparate in nature and consist of a scrapbook kept by Maud Mosley documenting her son Oswald Mosley's successful election campaign in Harrow in 1918 and his subsequent activities in the House of Commons and in his constituency; correspondence written to Maud Mosley, largely relating to her involvement in the B.U.F during the 1930s; and transcripts and associated papers relating to attempts by a spirit medium to contact the spirit of Cynthia Mosley for advice about Oswald Mosley's best course of action in politics in 1935 and 1936. Taken together, this material illustrates Maud Mosley's keen interest in and support for her son's political career, from its beginnings to his leadership of the British Union of Fascists in the 1930s.
