The records of the Ethical Union and British Humanist Association

As well as the records of the Ethical Union and British Humanist Association, the archive (held by Bishopsgate Institute) also contains material of affiliated humanist groups.

The majority of the groups are local humanist organisations. These organisations held regular meetings as well as arranging talks, trips and social sessions for their members. Other groups included those established to consider specific issues and those which catered for a specific age group.

Collectively, the material provides an insight into how individual communities approached their humanist beliefs as well as demonstrating the broad appeal of the humanist message in the twentieth century.
