Abstract

This collection consists of photocopied excerpts taken from documents held in the 'Russian State Military Archive' of the 'Federal Archive Service of Russia' in Moscow concerning the International Paneuropean Union. The material is a selection of the correspondence sent and received by R. Coudenhove-Kalergi. In 1924 R. C.-K. set up a Head Office in the Hofburg in Vienna and held a large correspondence with personalities from all over Europe in order to publicise his ideas and set up national committees of the International Paneuropean Union. He also organised 'Paneuropean Congresses' on political, agrarian and economic matters and carried out various opinion polls on Paneuropean matters.
