Herbert Wechsler Papers, 1919-2000, bulk 1932-1995

Series XII: Oversize Documents, Photos, and Ephemera, 1928-1984

Series XII: Oversize Documents, Photos, and Ephemera (3 boxes, 1.75 linear feet). This series collects the loose photos, ephemera, and documents that were too large for the other boxes in the collection. It is divided into three sub-series (A: Photos, B: Large Documents, and C: Largest Documents) mostly according to size. Sub-series B and C are arranged according to date. This includes many of the awards and honorary degrees that Wechsler received. Some of the photo subjects include Francis Biddle, the Nuremberg trials and of course Wechsler himself.
