Oxfam Donates Archive To Bodleian Library

Posted at 10:55PM Monday 25 Feb 2013

The records of 70 years of struggle to keep the world from starving, encapsulated in 10,000 boxes of archive material of Oxfam, have been donated to the Bodleian Library in Oxford.

The charity operates across the world, but began life as the Oxford Committee for Famine Relief. The first meeting was held in 1942 at the university church, St Mary the Virgin, a stone's throw from the Bodleian.
