Context

Administrative/Biographical history:

Albert Edwin Johannes Hollaender was the first Keeper of Manuscripts at Guildhall Library.

Hollaender was born in Vienna in 1908. He was forced to flee to England in 1938 after writing negative articles about Adolf Hitler in the newspaper 'Wiener Zeitung'.

After serving in the Intelligence Corps during the Second World War, Hollaender became Keeper of Manuscripts at Guildhall Library in 1945. He built up the collections of the Manuscripts Section, taking in archives from City of London livery companies, parishes and businesses as well as the Diocese of London. He retired in 1973 after which he became a volunteer at the Public Record Office (now The National Archives).

Hollaender was also a founder member of the Society of Archivists, now the Archives and Records Association and was editor of the society's journal for many years, as well as editing Guildhall Library's own scholarly journal, Guildhall Miscellany.

Hollaender died in 1989.
