Radnor Hunt Archives [Contact Us]
1887-2016
Creator:
Radnor Hunt (Malvern, Pa.)
Extent: 3.2 linear feet
Founded in 1883 in Radnor, Pennsylvania, a suburb of Philadelphia, Radnor Hunt is the oldest continuously active fox hunt in the United States, as recognized by the Masters of Foxhounds Association of America (MFHA). The Hunt remained in Radnor until 1931, when encroaching development in the area led it to move about seven miles west to a new location near Malvern, Pennsylvania. While Radnor Hunt has remained at the Malvern location, it acquired additional hunting territory elsewhere in the region in the late 1990s as other hunts in the area disbanded. For more than 130 years, Radnor Hunt has been the focal point of an active sporting community carrying on not only its traditional activity of fox chasing, but also encouraging a great many other activities involving countryside pursuits, horses, hounds and good sportsmanship. Many prominent families and leading businessmen of the greater Philadelphia area have been among Radnor Hunt's members over the years. The Radnor Hunt Archives manuscripts collection, 1887-2016, consists of personal papers or other private materials that were not originally generated or received by Radnor Hunt, but were deposited in the Archives because they relate to the Hunt, fox hunting, or other relevant subjects.
