TitleJournalism papers filed under 'U & V' by Hermione MacColl.
DescriptionMost of the material relates to MacColl's time in the United States of America, including: an invitation to the White House for a Reception with the President and Mrs Truman; a invitation to Harry Truman's inauguration as President of the United States; a Permit to Reenter the United States, with a photograph signed by MacColl; and a typescript sheet entitled 'René MacColl. Vital Statistics', a brief potted history of his life from birth to the 1950s. The file also includes MacColl's 'Diary in USA', a typescript diary with a number of manuscript entries and annotations written by MacColl during his first few months as Director of British Press Service in New York. The diary highlights his frustrations with the post and the constraints within which he found himself working, as well as more domestic details, such as snatched moments with his first wife, Helen. The file also inlcudes MacColl's 'Daily Express' press pass issued in July 1947 by the Information Centre of the European Office of the United Nations.
