Detailed Collection Information

Historical Note

The English-Speaking Union was founded in London in 1918 to foster an exchange between English speaking countries. The Philadelphia Branch of the English-Speaking Union of the United States was founded in 1920. During World War II the Branch raised money for various activities in England, prepared garments for British children, provided binoculars contributed by members for airplane spotting, etc. Much of the Branch's activities following the war were concerned with student exchanges, scholarships, hospitality, and a variety of lectures.
