To mark the anniversary of 100 years since the birth of Huddersfield’s most famous son,  James Harold Wilson, Baron Wilson of Rievaulx, KG, OBE, PC, FRS (11 March 1916 – 24 May 1995), Huddersfield Local Studies Library have put up a display exploring some of the key moments in the politician’s career. Another section looks at buildings and places commemorating Wilson’s name.

You can also come in and take a look at our collection of books written by Harold Wilson himself as well as other titles related to his life, including newspaper cuttings of his Huddersfield visits!
