Manchester Mind (1970s-1990s)

Along with many other people I was involved in the Manchester Mind group during the late 1970s and early 1980s.

This page is the beginnings of an archive of documents from that period, initially mostly from my friend Nigel Rose.

Manchester Mind archive boxes

The idea at the moment is to organise a get-together of as many people from that time as possible, probably on a Saturday afternoon, and hopefully in Manchester’s Central Library where this archive might find a good home. This might be in the autumn of 2018.

Meanwhile, here are some key documents (pdf) from that time.
