This Christmas card comes from the Michael Foot (1913-2010) papers. It is from the novelist and writer Ernest Hemingway (1899-1961). We believe it dates from the period of World War II. Hemingway was introduced to Michael Foot by Connie Ernst; she was in London during the war working for the US Office of War Information. Michael was Editor of the London Evening Standard.
There will be a display of various Christmas cards from the 20th century in the Labour History Archive & Study Centre during December.
