The Anglo American Corporation of South Africa
Originally the Anglo American Corporation of South Africa (AAC), Anglo American was founded at the climax of the First World War by Ernest Oppenheimer with financial and political support from Britain and the USA. Mining houses had become key players in expanding settler colonial power across southern Africa since the end of the 19th century with the discovery of Rand gold and Kimberley diamonds.
