The Joint

I have been writing up some so-far rather disjointed notes on the American Joint Distribution Committee, which funded around twenty percent of the Kitchener camp costs.

It is disjointed because the lovely folk at ‘The Joint’, as it is familiarly known, are looking out their archival records for consultation for the project.

I thought it better to get something rather than nothing onto the project pages for now, but the page linked to above will be expanded in due course when I have the first-hand archival records to consult. I’m very much looking forward to getting into their records on this and we very much appreciate their kind help.
