General Note

From the Series:

The Research Correspondence Series primarily consists of correspondence between Martin S. Quigley and those helping him in his research for "Peace Without Hiroshima." These correspondents include fellow O.S.S. veterans such as Earl Brennan and R. Carter Nicholas; historians such as Gaddis Smith and Richard J. Sommers; clergy members such as Robert A. Graham, S.J., Patrick O'Connor, Egidio Cardinal Vagnozzi; and Japanese officials such as Ken Harada, Augustin Masahide Kanayama and Bishop Benedict Tomizawa. The extensive correspondence between Quigley, Brennan and Graham are particularly interesting, with numerous accounts of the O.S.S. and its early history.
