The Mass Observers - newly catalogued material

moa directiveWe are pleased to report that we are able to open up a collection material relating to the Mass Observation Directive respondents. This material dates from the launch of Mass Observation in the late 1930s until 1953. It includes ‘self-reports’ and photographs produced by members of the Mass Observation Panel, as well as letters, bulletins and news circulars created by Mass Observation and sent to the panel.

The collection can be consulted in the Reading Rooms at The Keep. The catalogue record for the material can be viewed here.

This material was catalogued by Andrew del Strother and Lauren Clifton.
