Immediate Source of Acquisition

The first two consignments (21.4.1967 and 9.4.1980) of the Marcel Aurousseau papers were donated by Mr Aurousseau and were accessioned in 1981 at MS 1879. On the receipt of the third (and largest) consignment on 24 May 1985 from his widow, Mrs Cecily Aurousseau, for reasons of space a new number (MS 7070) was allocated to papers.


The consignments received in 1967 and 1980 are arranged in a single sequence of four series (Series 1 to Series 4). The consignment added in 1985 is arranged in a separate sequence of twenty series (Series 1 to Series 20).
