Subseries VII.A: Cours, 1926-1937
From 1926 through 1939 in collaboration with the Institut des Hautes Études Internationales and under the auspices of the Faculty of Law in the University of Paris, the Centre Européen conducted courses of lectures on international organization and relations. Starting in 1928 the Centre offered a considerable number of shorter courses. The lectures were published and distributed to libraries in Europe and the United States.
For each year, there is correspondence, mostly with the lectureres and printers, and documents. The documents consist of posters, invitations, schedules, budgets, and typed and printed versions of the courses.
See also Series XIII. Oversise material for posters and announcements and the CEIP Records (III.C.5. Cours) for more transcripts of the lectures.
Subseries VII.B: Chaire Carnegie, 1925-1938
In addition to the Cours, the Centre offered independent courses under the auspices of the Chaire Carnegie, which it established in 1925. Each year, the Chaire and invited authorities delivered a series of lectures on a subject selected in agreement with the consultative committee. André Tibal (University of Nancy and previously Directeur of L'Institut Français at Prague) occupied the Chaire from 1925 until 1940.
From 1927 until 1933 the Centre also maintained a Carnegie Lehrstuhl at the Deutsche Hochschule für Politik in Berlin. Unlike the Chaire in Paris, until 1931 the Lehrstuhl was not entrusted to one professor, but was conducted as a series of lectures and seminars given yearly at the Hochschule and the University of Berlin by several professors from different countries. In 1931 Hajo Holborn of the University of Heidelberg was appointed permanent incumbent of the Chaire Carnegie in Berlin. In 1933 the German Government made the Hochschule an official school and the Carnegie Lehrstuhl was discontinued.
This series includes correspondence (mostly with lecturers and printers), clippings, press releases, posters, lectures in typescript and published versions, and invitations.
See also Subseries VII.C. (Conférences diverses) for other material on lectures delivered under the auspices of the Chaire.
