About this work
This series was labelled on the boxes 'Saint' but appears to consist of several types of files, kept together as one series. The series is broadly concerned with the higher level management of the WHMM, but a large number of the files are of HSW's correspondence dealing with WHMM administration as well as subjects of a more personal or ephemeral nature. It appears that Saint, or Malcolm, acted as HSW's personal secretaries in this instance, or had letters passed on by HSW for them to deal with. It is not always clear why correspondence was filed in this series, rather than the Chr series, as the subject matter of much of this correspondence is broadly similar in tone, or importance, to much in the Chr series.
