Abstract

This is an edited and elaborated version of the address given by Jeff James as historical manuscripts commissioner to the symposium held on 14 October 2019 to mark the 150th anniversary of the creation of the Historical Manuscripts Commission in 1869. He reviews The National Archives’ current activities and priorities as a contemporary expression of the objectives of the HMC royal warrant and concludes that the Historical Manuscripts Commission still forms an integral part of The National Archives’ wider leadership of the archive sector.
