History and profile
Algemeen Handelsblad was founded in 1828 by J.W. van den Biesen, a stock broker. The paper aimed at providing news about trade, share holding and banking. Later its coverage was expanded to cover political news.
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.
