Archives of the European Movement

Foundations of Modern Europe-Series One: Archives of the European Movement

D1060 F68 1998 [microfiche]

Hundreds of documents from the early to mid 20th century "European Federalist Movement." Dated between 1940-1987, multiple European languages are represented in this collection, with correspondence to and from such notable individuals as Winston Churchill, Dwight D. Eisenhower, Jean Monnet, Paul Henri Spaak, Averill Harriman and William J. Fulbright. The originals of the collection reside at the European University Institute, Florence, Italy. These represent a broad historical cross-section of people and organizations linked to the advocacy of a more politically united European continent, an issue still quite timely today. {A gift to the SU Library Collection from Maxwell School of Public Affairs Political Science Professor, Craig Parsons, and Professor of History Emeritus, Peter T. Marsh}
