Series IV: Immigration, 1952-1955
Material in this series relates to immigration legislation and problems faced by immigrants. It includes a wide range of documents, such as immigration and crime statistics, clippings and editorials, information on the effect of the McCarren Act on immigrants, a collection of hate literature (much of it anti-Semitic) accompanied by notes, and letters to Lehman from people who experienced problems applying for visas or with reentering the country and his responses. The series focuses primarily on European immigration, but there are two folders on illegal Mexican immigrants.
