Manuscripts

At one time, letters from American servicemen were a collecting interest of the library.7 Other items include typescripts of wartime reminiscences of Benedetto Croce, and a holograph manuscript describing the flight from his home in Sorrento in 1943 to escape seizure by the German soldiers. Material related to World War II is found in the papers of Norman Thomas, Elizabeth H. Bennett, Ward Morehouse, Alexander N. Sack, Carl Van Vechten, and the Gaffney-Ahearn family, held in the Manuscripts and Archives Division.
