Twentieth-Century International Relations Collection
The Twentieth-Century International Relations Collection is an accumulation of the college's vertical files from the first half of the century. Approximately 2,800 pieces, ranging from postcards and pamphlets to posters, help document world politics and American involvement, with particular emphasis given to the years 1914-1950.
Highlights from this collection include a large collection of propaganda posters published in the United States during World War II, as well as several pamphlets published by the Nazi Party in Germany. The collection includes "Facts in Review," a National Socialist publication that represents propaganda disseminated in the United States prior to July 1941, and The Greater East Asia Joint Declaration, a publication that represents an effort to unite Asian nationalists in hopes of keeping the United States out of the military conflicts in the Pacific.
