Hanes bywgraffyddol

The National Library had acquired a small quantity of election addresses, political leaflets and circulars, and some printed records deriving from the political parties and their local branches ever since its inception in the early twentieth century. However, no systematic attempt was made to collect these, and the National Library's holdings were consequently patchy with major gaps. Following the establishment of the Welsh Political Archive in the spring of 1983, a systematic attempt was made to acquire these materials by creating a network of local contacts in every constituency in Wales and by establishing contact with the Welsh headquarters of each of the political parties. Other individuals and groups have also presented similar material from time to time.

Unedau o ddisgrifiad cysylltiedig

There are many election addresses, political leaflets and circulars and other printed matter of political interest in a large number of the political archives, both personal collections and party records, in the custody of the National Library. The papers donated by the Rev. Ivor T. Rees, Swansea, also include a large number of parliamentary election addresses deriving from the Welsh constituencies. The Library has also purchased microfilm copies (MFL 36) of the election addresses from English, Welsh and Scottish constituencies, 1892-1931, held at the Special Collections Department of Bristol University Library. This collection was originally in the custody of the National Liberal Club, London.
