Kellen, Stephen M. and Anna-Maria


Banker and philanthropist Stephen Max Kellen was born in Berlin. In 1936 he moved to London, working for the Lazard brothers bank, and the following year relocated to New York, where he lived for the remainder of his life. Perhaps Kellen's best known legacy is the American Academy in Berlin, founded in 1994 as a non-partisan center for scholarly exchange between the US and Germany. The center is housed at the former home of Hans and Ludmilla Arnhold. Arnhold, a prominent banker, and his wife were forced to flee Nazi Germany, and emigrated to New York. There he helped establish Arnhold & S. Bleichroeder, the firm which Kellen joined when he moved to New York. Kellan married Arnhold's daughter Anna-Maria, with whom he had two children, Mariana K. French and Michael M. Kellen.
