Identifier: AR 2920
Abstract

This collection consists primarily of clippings and other published materials, amassed to illustrate the family trees of the Arnholds and related families, thus providing a picture of their activities as bankers, collectors, and public benefactors. Emphasis is given to the bank’s retirement plan, ’Gebrüder Arnholdscher Pensionsverein’ and to the art collector Eduard Arnhold and his foundation, Deutsche Akademie Rom Villa Massimo. Of special interest is a handwritten account about Kurt Arnhold’s escape from Germany to Holland in circa 1938.

Dates: 1830-1987; Majority of material found in 1920s-1930s
