The Rothschild Archive Trust

The Rothschild Archive was established in 1978 by Victor, 3rd Lord Rothschild. In 1999 the ownership of the Archive was transferred to The Rothschild Archive Trust, an independent body of family members and advisers committed to securing the future of the collection and to developing its use by the academic community.

Trustees meet twice a year. There are two sub-committees of the Trust, an Academic Advisory Committee and an Investment Committee. The current Chair of the The Rothschild Archive Trust is Baron Eric de Rothschild.
