ALBERT MELTZER 1920 – 1996

In remembrance of an old friend of the archive since its inception over 30 years ago. Just before his death i let Albert know of my collecting / researching of the history of anarchism on Tyneside, to which his response was the information we have and known was only the ‘tip of the iceberg’. Sadly a lot of this information passed with Albert’s passing.

7th May 1996 we attended the funeral of Albert – funeral programme below..
