Archive of the Anglo-German Foundation

Dates: 1973 – 2011

The collection consists of the publications and working papers of the Anglo-German Foundation (Deutsch-Britische Stiftung). The largest part are the over 500 publications that were produced from research funded by the Foundation. Administrative documents from some of those projects also exist, particularly for those carried out between 2000 and 2009. The series of papers for committee and board meetings is comprehensive while correspondence files are incomplete but still provide a good idea of the workings and bilateral relationships of the Foundation. In addition to research publications, the collection also includes material published about the Foundation itself, such as annual reports and leaflets, and programmes of the Königswinter Conference which was partly funded by the Foundation. Finally there are folders of press cuttings, photographs and other memorabilia.
