Middle East Centre Archive, St Antony's College

The Middle East Centre Archive was founded in 1961 by Elizabeth Monroe and Albert Hourani with the aim of preserving and making available for research the papers and photographs of individuals who have lived or served in the Middle East as for example senior Government representatives, members of the armed forces, bankers, businessmen, missionaries or travellers.

The Archive has state of the art facilities in the Investcorp Building (designed by Zaha Hadid) and now contains over 2,900 boxes of papers and photographs of over 650 individuals or organisations covering the period 1800 to the present day with strong holdings for the Palestine Mandate and for Oman in the 1970s.

Please note that the Middle East Centre Archive does not hold St Antony’s College records.
