A strong Humboldt network in the United States is central to the work and mission of American Friends and of the AvH. American Friends therefore strives to keep accurate contact records on all alumni of the Foundation, but we recognize that many Humboldtians have mobile careers. We appreciate your cooperation in helping us maintain current contact information, so that we can keep you informed about American Friends, the AvH, and your fellow alumni.
