The Anglo-German Friendship Committee was a London-based association, founded to promote improvement of cordial relations between the Great Britain and Germany. The Committee was launched on December 1, 1905, at a meeting in Caxton Hall.[1] Its founders included the banker Lord Avebury and Lord Courtney. The German ambassador in London and the British ambassador in Berlin supported the committee.[2] Bertha von Suttner (who was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in the same year) helped found the committee.[3] F. W. Fox was the honourable secretary of the committee.[4]

The foundation of the Anglo-German Friendship Committee was lauded by prominent German-Americans, who sent a telegram declaring their support to the new association to its inaugural meeting.[1]
