Watergate related newspapers on display in the library

To accompany the annual postgraduate history conference, which takes place at the RAI today on the theme of Watergate 40 Years On, we have a small display of some contemporary newspapers which were recently donated to us by Professor Philip Davies (Eccles Centre, British Library). The newspapers date from the summer of 1974 and cover the build up to and immediate aftermath of President Nixon’s resignation on 9th August of that year.
