The William Kattan Project

Published on (GMT) by Freja Howat-Maxted
The William Kattan Project is part of the Planet Bethlehem Archive. The project documents the lives of various members of the Kattan family, following their movements out of Bethlehem to various countries around the world. At the centre of the project are the children of Giries Hanna Kattan (1861-1929) who established a new branch of the family business in Sudan at the turn of the 20th century. Most of the materials in the project relate to these activities in Sudan and how the family used this base to explore other opportunities in Germany, the UK, Egypt, India, Japan, Chile and Honduras. _____________________________________________________________________ The project was donated to the Planet Bethlehem Archive by William Victor Kattan (the grandson of Giries Hanna Kattan). The materials are a mixture of photographs, letters, postcards and business documents. _____________________________________________________________________ The project is divided into 3 collections (click on the links below to explore each collection): _____________________________________________________________________ 1.
