History

The Dundee Unionist Association was formed in 1910 by the merger of the Dundee Conservative Association and the Dundee Liberal Unionist Association. In 1918 it was merged with the Dundee Women's Unionist Association. In its early years the dominant figure in the Association was Sir George Baxter (Bart) who had formerly been a leading Liberal Unionist and was President of the Scottish Unionist Association. In 1931 the Association's candidate Florence Gertrude Horsbrugh was elected as one of the two MPs for Dundee and thus became the first Conservative or Unionist to represent Dundee in Parliament since the Great Reform Act (1832). Horsbrugh was re-elected in 1935, but was defeated in the 1945 general election. In 1948 the Association merged with the local Liberal National organisation to form the Dundee Unionist and Liberal National Association (subsequently known as the Dundee Unionist and National Liberal Association). In the 1960s it became known as the Dundee Conservative and Unionist Association. Around the 1980s the Association split into the Dundee East Conservative and Unionist Association and the Dundee West Conservative and Unionist Association. In 2005 the Dundee East Conservative and Unionist Association became the Dundee East and South Angus Conservative and Unionist Association. In 2007 Dundee East and South Angus Conservative and Unionist Association merged with the Dundee West Conservative and Unionist Association to form Dundee and South Angus Conservative and Unionist Association.
