Over the past century, the Albright has welcomed scholars from across disciplines, cultures, and ethnicities and become the hub of historical research that we know today. In 2025, we will be celebrating the 100th anniversary of the Institute by completing renovations to the building, reflecting on the past, and preparing the Albright for the next generation of researchers.
