Description

Scope and Content

The materials chiefly concern Yugoslavia in Crisis and an unfinished project referred to as "The Yugoslavia Government in Exile, 1941-44;" but materials in the latter primarily relate to the war in Yugoslavia. The collection includes letters from such pre-World War II Yugoslav politicians as Dragiša Cvetkoviʹc, Miha Krek, Vladko Maček, and Milan Stojadinoviʹc. Subject files largely concern his research on Yugoslavia at the end of the war, and the Mid-European Studies Center in New York in the 1950s. Manuscripts by various people deal with twentieth century Eastern Europe. There are photographs of Paul, Prince Regent of Yugoslavia; of Prince Paul's nephew, King Peter II; and of Josip Broz Tito, as well as several hundred photographs taken in Yugoslavia during and immediately after the war. Printed materials include many pamphlets, offprints, books, clippings, and mimeographed research reports, chiefly concerning Yugoslavia.
