Alpine Club Archives
The AC Archives contain a wide-ranging collection of documents going back to the earliest days of mountaineering, and as such form an invaluable resource for researchers. Examples of some of our material can be seen in the AC Archive Album, and the AC archive catalogue can be accessed via the National Archive.
There is a computer database catalogue, though this is only accessible by Archives staff (or by the Librarian). It is hoped to remedy this situation before long, with at least a printed version of the catalogue available in the Library for visitors to consult.
The Archives are normally open one day each week. If you wish to visit you should check first by e-mail to the Hon Archivist, copied to the Librarian (firstname.lastname@example.org), who can also be contacted by telephone on 0207 613 0745.
Charges for use of the Archives are as follows:
Visit fee: £5 per day, students £2.50, AC members free
The Hon Archivist, Glyn Hughes, can be contacted on 01494 792073, or at the e-mail address above.
