Bodleian Libraries acquire Sir Edward Heath Archive (UK)

Bodleian Libraries acquire Sir Edward Heath Archive (UK)The Bodleian Libraries, with support from the National Heritage Memorial Fund (NHMF) have acquired the archive of former Conservative Prime Minister, Sir Edward Heath (1916-2005). It comprises almost 1,000 boxes and includes a rich and diverse collection of papers from his time in office, in the shadow cabinet, as well as personal papers from his early life including his time as an undergraduate at Balliol College, and his active role in student politics during the 1930s. The archive has great research potential as it offers a range of primary sources for scholars and students with an interest in 20th century history and politics. Biographers will also be able to reveal less-known aspects of Heaths’ private life such as his distinguished war service, and of his passion for music and sailing
