Oliver Reginald Tambo spent most of his life serving in the struggle against apartheid. During his years in the African National Congress (ANC), Oliver Tambo played a major role in the growth and development of the movement and its policies. He was among the generation of African nationalist leaders who emerged after the Second World War who were instrumental in the transformation of the ANC from a liberal-constitutionalist organisation into a radical national liberation movement.

Oliver Reginald Tambo was born in Mbizana in eastern Pondoland in the  Cape Province on 27 October 1917. He attended  Ludeke Methodist School, and completed his primary education at  Holy Cross Mission near Flagstaff. From there he transferred to  St. Peter's Secondary School in Johannesburg. After completing his secondary education, Tambo went to the  University College of Fort Hare in  Alice [South Africa] and earned a Bachelor of Science degree in 1941. He remained at the  University of Fort Hare to qualify for an honours degree but was expelled in 1942 during a student strike over demands for a democratically elected student representative council. Following his expulsion he returned to St. Peter's in Johannesburg as a science and mathematics teacher.

In Johannesburg, Tambo became involved with a group of young leaders who advocated a more radical direction for the African National Congress (  ANC). Working with  Nelson Mandela,  Walter Sisulu,  Anton Lembede,  Ashby Mda,  William Ncomo,  C.M. Majombozi, and others, Tambo became a founding member of the  ANC Youth League (  ANCYL) in 1944. He served as the Youth League's national secretary and was elected president of the Transvaal in 1948 and national vice-president in 1949.

Tambo moved quickly into a position of influence in the senior ANC and was elected to the Transvaal Executive of the  ANC. In 1948, along with  Walter Sisulu, he was elected to the National Executive Committee. Tambo was also a member of the committee that drew up the Programme of Action in 1948, which helped move the  ANC from a passive organization charged with catering to the elite, to one which mobilized the people for massive campaigns of civil disobedience and non-violent resistance.

Tambo left teaching in 1947 and took up law. With the support of Walter Sisulu he was articled in a Johannesburg law firm. In 1952, he qualified as an attorney, and later that year he established a law practice with  Nelson Mandela. Their legal practice championed underprivileged victims of apartheid laws.

Pressure and banning orders from the South African government forced  Walter Sisulu to resign from  ANC leadership leading to Tambo's appointment as acting secretary-general in 1954. Although banned himself, and restricted to Johannesburg, Tambo was allowed to retain his leadership position in the  ANC. During this period he helped to guide the  ANC through the Defiance Campaigns and the difficult campaigns against the Western area removal and the introduction of Bantu Education. In December 1956, he was arrested and charged with treason. He was among those discharged from the Treason Trial in late 1957. In 1958, with  Albert Luthuli isolated by bans restricting him to his Natal home, Tambo was elected to fill the newly created post of deputy president-general of the  ANC. In 1959,  Tambo was banned and was forbidden to attend gatherings for five years.

Following the Sharpeville Massacre of 1960, ANC leaders were convinced a banning of the  ANC was imminent and made plans for Tambo to leave the country to serve as a foreign spokesman and to establish external missions and mobilize international support against the apartheid system.

From the banning of the ANC and  PAC (  Pan Africanist Congress) in 1960 until the unbanning of the  ANC in 1990, Tambo led the  ANC's organization in exile, living in London,  Tanzania, and  Zimbabwe. In conjunction with  Yusuf Dadoo he was instrumental in the establishment of the  South African United Front (  SAUF), which brought together the  ANC external missions, the  PAC (  Pan Africanist Congress), the  South African Indian Congress, and the  South West African National Union (  SWANU). Through successful lobbying the  SAUF brought about the expulsion of  South Africa from the Commonwealth in 1961. Following its initial success the  SAUF broke up in July 1961.

Aided by various African governments, Tambo established ANC missions in  Egypt,  Ghana,  Morocco, and  London, England. Eventually the  ANC operated missions in 27 countries by 1990. Countries hosting missions included all permanent members of the  United Nations Security Council with the exception of  China.

When the ANC moved to armed struggle and activated  Umkhonto we Sizwe, Tambo was instrumental in securing the cooperation of numerous African governments in providing training and facilities for the  ANC. Following  Albert Luthuli's death in 1967, Tambo was named acting president-general. His appointment was approved by the Morogoro Conference in 1969.

Throughout the 1970s, Tambo's international prestige rose immensely as he traveled the world promoting opposition to the apartheid system. In 1985, Tambo was reelected ANC president at the Kabwe conference. In that role he served as head of the Politico-Military Council (PMC) of the  ANC and as commander in chief of  Umkhonto we Sizwe.

In 1989, Tambo suffered a stroke and spent several months in Stockholm recuperating. He returned to South Africa in 1991 and was elected national chairperson at the  ANC's first legal national conference in July 1991. He was offered the position of chancellor at the  University of Fort Hare in 1991.  Oliver Tambo died on 24 April 1993.

The collection has been arranged in four series: A. Personal Documents, B. Office of the President, C. Special Topics, and D. Press Cuttings. The series structure was arranged in a numerical sequence (i.e., A1=Family, A2 = Finance). The numerical structure is expanded outward to reflect subdivisions (i.e., A1.1= Adelaide Tambo and A1.1.1 represents  Adelaide Tambo's correspondence). In many cases the numbering system extends to several places (A12.1.2.1). These same numbers have been annotated on the documents themselves.

Series A: Personal Documents, 1960-1992 includes material relating to  Oliver Tambo's family, his health, and travels. Documentation includes correspondence, diaries, notebooks, greeting cards, and get well wishes. The bulk of the material dates from 1960 to 1992. The diaries cover 1980, 1981, and 1990, but are limited in coverage, mainly representing appointments, travel and meetings. Several notable correspondents appear in the correspondence series, including  Harry Belafonte,  Yusuf Dadoo,  Trevor Huddleston,  D.F. Malan,  Julius Nyerere,  Olaf Palme, and  Ron Segal. Several transcripts of interviews are also present in this series, as is information on interaction with the media.

Series B. Office of the President, 1960-1990 contains records relating to Tambo's activities as head of the  ANC in exile. Records include official correspondence, statements, material on  ANC missions,  National Executive Committee (  NEC),  National Working Committee (  NMC), and information on the various  ANC departments and offices. Material on organisations associated with the  ANC are also present, and have some overlap with documentation in series C. This series is particularly rich in documentation of the  ANC from its banning in 1960 to the subsequent unbanning in 1990. Records reflect efforts to raise international awareness against apartheid policies and are highly illustrative of events in  South Africa during this period.

Series C. Special Topics, undated has significant overlap with series B. Records are arranged in five main categories: Conferences, Countries, Individuals, Organisations, and Subjects. The  Organisation of African Unity (  OAU) is particularly well documented in the organisations, as are anti-apartheid movements. Within the individuals,  Nelson Mandela is well represented.

Series D. Press Cuttings, undated provide strong documentation on general subjects, countries, individuals, and organisations. The finding aid does not include a listing of the press cuttings.

An index of subjects, individuals and organisations follows this finding aid (found at the end of Series C) and is a useful source for finding information on specific topics, events, and people.
