Born in England in 1904, Alan Chambers was a Liberal MP for the Nanaimo riding. By trade, he was an exporter, importer and merchant. Chambers was first elected to Parliament in the 1940 general election after an earlier unsuccessful attempt to win a seat there in 1935. After serving one term in the House of Commons, Chambers was defeated by George Pearkes of the Progressive Conservatives in the 1945 election. Chambers became the European chief of the Department of Veterans Affairs after World War II where he worked for the remainder of his career. During the war, his wife lived in Cowichan Bay. Chambers died in 1981.

Fonds consists of two letters to Chamber's wife, who lived in Cowichan Bay. The letters detail Chamber's war and political work and ideas.
