Harry L. Hopkins Papers 2

Identifier: GTM-880401

Scope and contents note

This is the second acquisition of the Harry L. Hopkins Papers at Georgetown University's Special Collections Department. The papers in this second collection, comprising 7 boxes and 3.5 linear feet, are arranged in the following series: a Family Correspondence Series, Organizations Correspondence Series, White House Correspondence Series, Personal/Manuscripts Series, Photographic Series, Clippings Series, and Oversize Items Series. Harry Lloyd Hopkins' personal papers illuminate the family and character of a man in the public eye whose ideas and hard work helped to share world affairs. They show the joking, loving, sometimes troubled man whom Winston Churchill described in the following words:

"...Among all those in the grand alliance, warriors or statesmen, who struck deadly blows at the enemy and brought peace nearer, you will ever hold an honoured place." (May 10, 1945, TLS from Michael Wright)
