Description These represent the personal papers and letters of Sir Henry Brougham Loch, later Lord Loch, and James Loch, his father. In addition to these, there are some earlier papers relating to the Lochs of Drylaw, but not many, as the bulk of these was presented by Lieut. Col. G H Loch to the British Library. A note of these is available on file T/677. An unspecified quantity of Sir H B Loch's South African papers was microfilmed by the York University Centre for Southern African Studies in 1977.
