Eli Whitney Debevoise Papers
Eli Whitney Debevoise Papers, 1949-1962
(3 linear ft.)
The papers of Eli W. Debevoise (EWD) document his position as the deputy general counsel with the High Commission for Germany-Office of General Counsel (HICOG-OGC) from 1950-1953 and his ongoing interest in US-German affairs. In addition to providing a picture of EWD's work at HICOG, this collection serves as an important adjunct to the papers of John J. McCloy, also held at the Amherst College Archives and Special Collections. McCloy was not only a friend of EWD, but also his superior at HICOG. While the Debevoise Papers include personal and professional correspondence, appointment calendars and other administrative material, memoranda, and speeches, the majority is published material relating to post-World War II Germany.
