  BRIEF BIOGRAPHY 
   
  Helen Suzman was born Helen Gavronsky on the 7 November 1917, in Germiston, Transvaal Province. She studied Economy and Statistics at the University of the Witwatersrand. In 1937 she married Dr. Moses Suzman and they had two daughters. Between 1941 and 1944, Suzman worked as a statistician for the War Supplies Board. In 1944 she returned to the University of the Witwatersrand as a lecturer in Economic History, where she remained until 1952. During that time she joined the South African Institute of Race Relations. 
  Suzman gave up teaching for politics when she was elected to parliament in 1953 as a member of the United Party. Six years later, when the Progressive Party (PP) was founded, she represented the Houghton constituency as that party's sole member of Parliament from 1961-1974, winning international fame for her courage and ability. She remained in Parliament with its successors, the Progressive Reform Party and then the Progressive Federal Party (PFP). 
  During her time in Parliament she defended the right to freedom of expression for all South Africans. As an English speaking Jewish woman in a Parliament dominated by conservative Afrikaner men she was even more of an outsider and often treated with disrespect. As a member of Parliament she was able to visit prisons, amongst them Robben Island, and inspected the living conditions of prisoners. She also visited Nelson Mandela numerous times in prison. In 1989 she retired from Parliament while remaining actively involved in South African politics. She spent a total of 36 years in Parliament. 
  Outside Parliament she became 'ombudsman' to the oppressed and unrepresented, and though sharply reviled by the nationalist government, she nevertheless achieved success in promoting human rights. Suzman won important changes for example in prison conditions. She campaigned against the reintroduction of the death penalty and also defended the right of women to choose on the issue of abortion. 
  Internationally, she has been awarded over 28 honorary degrees and nominated twice for the Nobel Peace Prize. In 1993 she published her autobiography "In no uncertain terms: A South African memoir". In 1996 she was awarded the Politeken and Dangens Nyheters Freedom Prize, jointly with Nelson and Winnie Mandela. 
  Helen Suzman died on the 1 January 2009, aged 91. 
   
  PROVENANCE 
   
  The collection consists of personal and political papers and photographs, covering the period of 1944-2009. 
   
  Helen Suzman deposited her papers with Historical Papers in 1989. Initially, Michelle Friedman worked on the inventory to her collection. Certain sections like 'Correspondence' have been left in the original order as filed by Helen Suzman's staff, in accordance with the archival principle of provenance, which explains why the Correspondence has been arranged by date and later by alphabetical order. Subsequently additions to the collection where processed by Anna Cunningham, Carol Archibald, Zofia Sulej and Gabriele Mohale.  
  The Helen Suzman Collection remained a 'work in progress' until after Helen Suzman's death in 2009. All subsequent additions following her first deposit in 1989, have been incorporated in the collection according to the initial classification of the collection.  
  In 2011 and again in 2013/14, with generous funding from the Oppenheimer Memorial Trust,  Ruth Muller undertook a major assessment of the collection. The Finding Aid was substantially expanded, providing researchers with a much more enhanced and detailed entry point to the collection.

Subjects include assaults on prisoners at Leeukop Prison where he had been jailed, exiled former Robben Island prisoners who are now living “in places one would be tempted to call concentration camps” and why people released from prison are then banned; re his own banning order, due to expire on 28/02/1971; refers to his arrest in 1966 and the attitude of authorities that prevented him attending classes at the University of Natal; Mxenge goes on to say that he fears his ban will be re-imposed and mentions that the Special Branch are “mean and vindictive towards me”.

I put him right on that one. Of course, being in the tobacco business he knew the brothers Suzman, Barney and Piet, quite well. He then said to me “You must be very pleased, Mrs. Suzman, that we are now on the right road” and I gave him one of my nastiest looks and said “You’ve got an awfully long way to travel on that road before you’ll get any praise from me, Mr. Rupert.” … Have been very busy preparing the speech for Crossroads … let me tell you, it is much more difficult to try and prepare a 15 minute speech than a half-hour speech … I had a dramatic moment when I produced a rubber bullet which Max had sent down to me to show Parliament what the damned things looked like,”
