These papers were compiled by Dianne Hayter during 2001-2003 for the research of her book, Fightback! Labour's traditional right in the 1970s and 1980s (2005), and was donated to the University of Hull archives in 2006. Dianne Hayter was active in Labour politics throughout the 1980s and since 1998 has served as part of the Labour Party National Executive Committee (NEC) and is a former Chief Executive of the European Parliamentary Labour Party and General Secretary of the Fabian Society.
This collection includes some of the original papers (and press cuttings) from Dianne Hayter's private papers and from John Speller and Ira Walters papers (both EEPTU staff (Electrical, Electronic, Telecommunications and Plumbing Union): papers given to Dianne Hayter, 2001; some marked "Bromley"). They also contain some original papers from the private papers of the late John Grant, given to Dianne Hayter by his widow, Mrs Pat Grant, 2001/02, some press cuttings given to Dianne Hayter by David Webster and papers from Mary Goudie's correspondence, the then LSC National Organsier (now Baroness Goudie, Life Peer in the House of Lords appointed in 1998). The documents also include extracts from the original documents held at Hull.
