Summary In 1948 and 1955, Mass-Observation conducted two surveys on behalf of the Daily Telegraph on attitudes to the death penalty: the first survey resulted in 295 replies, the second in 4000. The main body of this collection is made up of questionnaire replies which provide details of the social and political affiliations of the respondents as well as papers concerned with survey organisation and analysis. The earlier constituents of the collection are solicited comments on capital punishment (1938) and observations of public reaction to an execution in 1946. Published material relating to the abolition debate is included.
