The Fairbridge Society in Britain held personal and institutional records that may be of interest to people who were placed in Drapers Hall in South Australia. These records are now managed by The Prince's Trust, a British charitable organisation that merged with Fairbridge in 2011. A finding aid titled 'Information Sheet 14 [Fairbridge Archive, UK]' has been developed to describe the items that are included in the collection.
