These images feature a section from the handwritten minutes of the ‘Anglo Norse (Society) Club 1918’. The notes from 8 May 1918 were compiled by Ingebrigt Christopher Gröndahl (1882-1970), the first Lecturer in Norwegian at UCL who held this position from 1918 to 1942. The Anglo-Norse Society in London, which still exists today, was founded as a charity in 1918 in order to promote cultural exchanges between Norway and the UK. The notes reference the visit by Edward Price Bell (1869-1943), a journalist best known for his work with the Chicago Daily News, and comment on the connections between Norway and America, taking as a starting point Norwegian immigration to the States and the high number of Norwegian Americans deriving from this.
