Anna Freud Project
Archivist (German speaking)

Based at Freud Museum, 20 Maresfield Gardens, London, NW3 5SX
www.freud.org.uk 

Part-time 10 month contract: June 2013 – March 2014
Salary: £31,000 pro rata, 4 days a week (£24,800)
Reporting to: Curator

Job purpose
To be responsible for the arrangement, description, and preservation of all archival material relating to Anna Freud, which includes manuscripts and drafts, letters, photographs, patient information and other materials relating to the life and work of Anna Freud and the Freud family. The Museum currently has no archivist on its staff. 

Background
The Freud Museum London is the final home of Sigmund Freud, the founder of psychoanalysis and his daughter Anna Freud.  It opened to the public in 1986.  Since the Museum launched its Development Plan in 2006, it has been steadily moving forward in order diversify and increase its audiences through improvements to interpretation, exhibitions, visitor services and programming.

Freud Museum Archives
The archives contain approximately 8,000 letters and over 1,000 miscellaneous documents.  Many of these are copies, as a large number of original documents were transferred to the Library of Congress in Washington during the second half of the 20th century.  The archives also include approximately 4,000 photographs.  Most of the 170 prints are reproductions of works of art, probably souvenirs of Freud's travels.  There are also around 2,000 press cuttings relating to the Freuds.

Anna Freud Project
In March 2013 the Museum was awarded funding from the Arts Council England to undertake a one-year project relating to Anna Freud who was a pioneer of child psychoanalysis and lived at Maresfield Gardens from 1938 until her death in 1982.  The Project, which will be undertaken in partnership with the nearby Anna Freud Centre, has four key strands: 

Collections:  To consolidate the existing records and conduct research in order to complete the catalogue for collections and archival material relating to Anna Freud; to improve storage for these collections; to identify significant items for display; to photograph key items and make them available on the Museum’s website.

Interpretation:  To re-develop the Anna Freud Room in order to present more engaging and relevant displays on her life and work in children’s development and mental health, her influence on education, healthcare and the law and her complex relationship with her father and others.   
   
Artist in Residence:  To host an artist to engage with the collections and support staff working on the redisplay, to contribute to the learning programme and develop their own work.
