Accessions and Openings for the 4th quarter FY 2010
During the fourth quarter of FY 2010, the Hoover Library received nearly two (1.8) feet of material from the family of Herbert Hoover III; a three-foot accretion to the Elliot A. Rosen Papers; a six-foot accretion of press files from the Hoover administration; and a one-foot accretion to the Papers of Wayne Parrish.
During the fourth quarter, the Roosevelt Library accessioned 50.41 cubic feet of recent manuscript acquisitions.
Most notable among this quarter's accessions is the Grace Tully Archive, a collection totaling 6.5 cubic feet of correspondence, programs, invitations and memorabilia of Grace Tully, FDR's last personal secretary; a collection of papers of Marguerite A. LeHand, Tully's predecessor; and additional papers of President Roosevelt, including drafts of speeches and correspondence, handwritten notes and chits, and other materials.
The Tully Archive was donated by the Chicago Newspaper Liquidation Corp., the successor to Hollinger International and Sun-Times Media Corp., after five years of negotiations. This important collection first came to the library's attention in 2000, when portions of it were seen on display at Glenn Horowitz Bookseller in New York City by Director Cynthia Koch. The collection was purchased by Conrad Black, chairman of Hollinger International. When Hollinger encountered financial difficulties in 2004, the collection was consigned to Christie's auction house for sale, where staff from the library was invited to review the collection. At that time, it was determined that portions of the collection were clearly materials that were part of FDR's papers and therefore considered property of the United States Government. After five years of negotiation, which included a law resolving certain tax issues signed by President Obama on February 1, 2010 and sponsored in the Senate by Charles Schumer (D-NY) and in the House by Rep. Louise Slaughter (D-NY), the Tully Archive in its entirety is now part of the Roosevelt Library's collections.
The FDR-Suckley letters were donated to the Library by Chicago Newspaper Liquidation Corp. at the same time as the Tully Archive. This collection of approximately 39 handwritten letters from FDR to his distant cousin and confidante was purchased by Black and displayed in the offices of Hollinger/Sun Times. When the corporation was forced to vacate its offices in 2007, the Roosevelt Library was asked to hold them for safekeeping.
Another highly notable acquisition this quarter is the Rudolf Vrba Papers (43 cubic feet). Vrba was a young Slovakian Jew imprisoned by the Nazis in Auschwitz. In April 1944, he and a friend, Alfred Wetzler, escaped from Auschwitz and wrote a lengthy and detailed report about Auschwitz and its operations. The report includes charts and diagrams of the camp buildings, death chambers and ovens. The report reached the Allies in June 1944 and is one of the seminal documents and events in the history of America's response to the Holocaust. An English translation of the report is in the library's War Refugee Board Records. Vrba defected from Czechoslovakia after the war and eventually became a Canadian citizen. Although a trained neurologist, Vrba continued to research and study the Holocaust. His papers include his correspondence, writing, research files, books and other printed materials, photographs, audio and video tapes, and memorabilia. The Vrba Papers were donated by Rudolf Vrba's widow, Robin Vrba.
Other archival acquisitions this quarter included a collection of research materials related to FDR's health and death (gift of Steven M. Lomazow, MD); an extensive autograph collection of important public figures from 1937 to 1938 (gift of Ruth Wolpert); typed draft of Eleanor Roosevelt's "My Day" column written from Djakarta on September 4, 1955 (gift of Virginia R. Hall, who worked in the Djakarta embassy at the time); a scrapbook of historical materials related to Marion Rhoads Elliott's involvement in the 1928 Democratic Al Smith campaign (gift of Farar Elliott); a letter from a soldier stationed at Hyde Park recounting the events of a 1942 Christmas party for the soldiers given by the President and Mrs. Roosevelt (gift of Pattie Childs Kealy); a collection of printed and other materials compiled in the writing of a children's book about the New Deal (gift of Tonya Bolden); draft chapters of a memoir by Aubrey Williams, head of the National Youth Administration (gift of Slaton L. White, whose father Lee M. White, Jr., collaborated with Williams on the project).
During the fourth quarter, 43 new books, 33 periodicals, 89 reels of microfilm, and 90 Vertical File items were added to the printed materials collections.
