Notes for a history of the IMG

October 6, 2015

img_badgeAs Evan Smith notes at Hatful Of History little has been written of the history of the IMG.

We would like to go some way towards remedying this by pulling together sources, from the internet and elsewhere, to supplement the original documents and papers published here.

In the next few days, we will post links to two or three pieces which we think you will find of interest and we invite readers of this blog to point us in the direction of similar material or to contribute guest posts on aspects of IMG history and the individuals involved with it.

We will also be putting together a series of pages carrying links to obituaries of former members and some of their published works. Again, pointers in this direction are always gratefully received.

      Thanks Andrew. Useful stuff.

    I have somewhere sets of internal documents from the 1970-75 period, together with Black Dwarfs, Red Moles, Red Weeklies and other publications, if they will be of any help.

      Jason,
      I’d love to see what you have to fill gaps in my collection. I could drive over to Stafford one evening or weekend.
      Rob.

    I don’t know if you could gain access, but my archive of USFI/IMG material (complete publications and internat bulletins bar two/three items through 1968-1981) was sold some years ago to the Library of the Imperial War Museum. As a further aspect of Pabloite heresy, the deal was brokered by Tom McWhinney, the Communist candidate who defeated Denis Healey for the Presidency of the Oxford Union!
