Charles Madge and the mass-observation archive: a personal note
Dorothy Sheridan pages -


The original Mass-Observation archive was transferred to the University of Sussex in 1970 as the result of negotiations between the then vice-chancellor of Sussex, Asa Briggs, and Len England, at that time Director of Mass-Observation UK Ltd. Set up by Tom Harrisson, the archive became known as ‘The Tom Harrisson Mass-Observation Archive’ after his death. It was only then that Charles Madge re-involved himself in the project, apparently due to his reservations about working for the government, and M-O’s lack of social scientific rigour.
