Archival history Janey Buchan (1926 – 2012) began her political career in 1974 as a Labour councillor in Strathclyde Region before becoming the party’s Glasgow MEP in 1979, a post she held until 1994. She was born in Glasgow the daughter of a tram driver father and a domestic servant mother. A member of the Young Communist League in her youth, where she met her future husband and Labour MP Norman, she left the party for Labour in 1956 after CPGB refused to condemn the Soviet invasion of Hungary. With a keen interest in the arts and a variety of political causes, particularly the anti-apartheid campaign, she amassed a large collection of books and papers which she donated to various universities in later life.
