English Room Committee

Committee History 

The idea for an English Nationality Room was initially proposed by Dr. Albert Mansbridge in 1927; however, the construction of the room was delayed by the outbreak of the Second World War. Led by Member of Parliament and Chair of the Committee in London, Alfred C. Bossom, the room was eventually constructed using salvaged materials from the bombed House of Commons. The English Nationality Room was dedicated in 1952.
