Content and Structure


The material of interest in the Manuscripts and Archives Department of the Yale University Library concerning Jean Monnet and Europe, were taken from the Dean Acheson and the Walter Lippmann papers. However, the Yale Library would not permit copies of the Acheson and Lippmann papers to be made for placement in other archival institutions, but provided the material, pertinent to this project in microfilm form (35mm). There is also included on the microfilm information concerning the collections, historical background to both collections, chronology of their lives and descriptions of the relevant papers and their arrangement in the Yale Library. Acheson considered these papers to be his private papers, as opposed to the papers he created professionally as a lawyer and publically as a civil servant. Acheson's legal files remain with the firm of Covington and Burling and many of his official papers are in theTruman Presidential Library. Acheson's son donated these private papers to Yale University between 1981 - 1983. The Walter Lippman papers became the property of the Yale University by deed of gift in July 1944, but it was not till 1963 that the papers were actually deposited in the Yale Library.
