An archive which overlaps with many of those at Bradford!
We’re pleased to present a guest blog post from Emma Hancox, who recently spent two weeks at the Library as part of her archives and records management training.
As a student on the M.A. course in Archives and Records Management at University College London, I was fortunate to have the opportunity of a two week cataloguing placement at the Library of the Society of Friends. I had expressed a wish for a placement there because I knew that the Quakers had a reputation for being heavily involved in social justice, a subject in which I am particularly interested, and felt that the archives would be a rich record of this work. The collection I was given to catalogue did not disappoint. The personal papers of Hilda Clark (1881-1955), humanitarian aid worker and physician, brought to life Quaker relief work in war-torn Europe during and after World War I.
