 Anglo-American Club

There have been many organizations or fraternities called the "Anglo-American Club," designed as social havens for Britons and Americans in foreign countries. One was in Zurich,Swizerland (1890's); one in London and another in Burtonwood, England (during World War II); one in in Lac L'Achign, Quebec; another at Albert-Ludwigs-Universitšt in Freiburg, Germany and another in Freiberg, Saxony; one in the French university town of Aix en Provence; and even clubs in Beijing, China, Santiago, Cuba, Bombay, India, and Trondhjem, Norway--and probably many other locations.

However, since this label is for a mineral specimen, is written in German, and turned up in a German collection, the most likely source by far is the Anglo-American Club that was founded at the Freiberg Mining Academy in 1866--the first association for foreign students to be established there.
