Scope and contents note

From the Collection:

The Rev. Edmund A. Walsh, S.J. Papers: Part 2 comprise the personal papers of the extraordinary Jesuit educator, author, and geopolitician Rev. Edmund A. Walsh, S.J. The collection includes a fine run of letters to his brother Fred V. Walsh regarding Fr. Walsh's travels in Europe and his experiences connected to his service as a special adviser at the Nuremberg war crimes trials after World War II. Also of interest is a group of postcards sent by Fr. Walsh from various locations in Europe. In addition, there are a few manuscripts, some printed materials, a number of newspaper clippings, and a scrapbook of items pertaining to Fr. Walsh's distinguished career. Of particular note is a set of some 40 photographs depicting Fr. Walsh throughout his lifetime. A few photos show Fr. Walsh's living quarters in Nuremberg for the war trials. Some other photos document his role as head of the Papal Relief Mission to Russia to combat a famine there in the early 1920s. Taken together, the Rev. Edmund A. Walsh, S.J. Papers: Part 2 provide more documentation of the career of a noteworthy Jesuit.

The Georgetown University Library Booth Family Center for Special Collections also preserves the Edmund A. Walsh, S.J. Papers: Part 1. This new group designated as the Rev. Edmund A. Walsh, S.J.: Part 2 supplements the earlier collection which was cataloged in 1987.
