THE PAPERS OF

ALBERT HENRY WASHBURN

INTRODUCTION

The Albert Henry Washburn collection, donated in 1956 by his son, Albert Lincoln Washburn, is arranged chronologically and stored in twenty-two boxes occupying twenty-seven linear shelf feet. In addition to purely personal and biographical material the papers encompass a wide variety of national and international concerns of either a political or legal nature. Of particular interest to historians will be the documentation of the political and social chaos of postwar Austria. As United States Minister Plenipotentiary in Vienna Mr. Washburn kept characteristically meticulous records of correspondence and official reports, the microfilmed portion of which traces the development of the various socialist, anti-Semitic, and democratic contestants in the political melee of the 1920's. The remainder of the collection is made up of scrapbooks of news clippings covering the years 1888 to 1930 and a large collection of shorthand notes in Mr. Washburn's personal and almost indecipherable style.
