The AFIHR Board met at the NACBS in Minneapolis and decided to support the following
1. The IHR’s Library has launched a Library Conservation Fund and the AFIHR are
pleased to be joining the Mercers’ Company and the British Friends of the IHR at the outset of this important initiative.
2. The 2015 Anglo-American Conference is on Fashion and in support of this, the AFIHR will fund the digitizing of the four London department store catalogues from 1916/17, which will form a digital exhibit at the conference in July 2015.
3. The board voted to support bursaries for 2-3 Master’s degree students at the IHR and are delighted that they will be named after the AFIHR (students from outside Britain will be eligible to apply).
