Scope and content

Established in 1952 on the initiative of the Hamburg Jewish banker, Erich M. Warburg, the purpose of Atlantik-Brücke (Atlantic Bridge) was to strengthen ties between United States and the Federal Republic of Germany in the post-World War II years. Canada developed its own branch in the 1980s, in an initiative led by Professor Spencer and others. It sponsored annual conferences, alternately between Canada and Germany, which were attended by politicians, officials, business and professional people, journalists, and academics.

The files contain administrative matters (including correspondence with Allan J. MacEachen, Canadian co-chair from 1989-2003), and the preparations for and proceedings of successive meetings.
