Algemeen Handelsblad was an influential Amsterdam-based liberal daily newspaper published between 1828 and 1970.

History and profile[edit]

Algemeen Handelsblad was founded in 1828[1] by J.W. van den Biesen. At the peak of its influence—from the time of the Boer War, when it championed the Boer cause in South Africa, through World War I -- it was edited by Charles Boissevain. The paper had a liberal stance.[1]

Algemeen Handelsblad merged in 1970 with the Rotterdam-based liberal daily newspaper Nieuwe Rotterdamsche Courant into the NRC Handelsblad.[1]
