Subseries II.D: Hôtel, 1922-1937

In 1923 the Endowment purchased a building in Paris to house the Centre Européen. Previously, the Centre's offices were located in rooms at 24 rue Pierre Curie. The new building at 173 Boulevard Saint-Germain, an 18th century hôtel, contained the Centre's administration offices, lecture rooms, library, and a movie theater. The Centre also rented its rooms for lectures, and let office space to other organizations and individuals. This series documents the purchase, renovation, and day to day maintenance of the Centre Européen's headquarters. One of the Hôtel's longtime tenants was the American University Union, whose files in this subseries document its collaboration with the Endowment as well as its status as a tenant.
