History of the Collection
Donated by Archibald MacLeish, 1949.
Archibald MacLeish donated the collection to Flora Bell Ludington, Mount Holyoke College Librarian (1936-1964) with the written instructions, in 1949, that the material "be used by 'authorized persons' working on UNESCO history." Flora Bell Ludington served as the first director of the Office of War Information's Information Library at Bombay, India, 1944-1946, a department maintained by the State Department as part of its cultural relations program. At this time MacLeish was Assistant Secretary of State for Cultural Affairs.
