1917-1982
Extent: 31.5 linear feet (63 boxes)
The collection contains the primary source material for a thorough institutional history of a major women's service organization that spans three-quarters of a century. Issues of professionalization, volunteerism, and social and occupational networks as they relate to women's professional and social careers are well-documented. The AWH records provide the sources to examine a classic example of a woman's association that self-consciously bridged private and public domains, actively sought to bring the resources of public associations and the state to the aid of individuals in their own communities, and, in those countries which most severely relegated women to the private household, offered women access to a professional and public career.

The core of the collection comprises records of the Counter-Intelligence Corps (CIC) detachment of the 101st Airborne Division of the United States Army, which was stationed in Berchtesgaden, Germany, at the close of the Second World War. George R. Allen, who collected the materials, was a member of that CIC detachment. Included are typed transcripts of interviews with, statements from, or reports on family and staff of Adolf Hitler, including Fritz Goernnert (assistant to Hermann Göring), Franz Brandenburg and Willy Lau (Göring's guards), Christa Schroeder (Hitler's personal secretary), Paula Wolf (Hitler's sister), Angela Hammitzsch (Hitler's half-sister), Theodor Morell (Hitler's personal physician), Erich Kempka (Hitler's chauffeur), Günther Mannertz (member of the SS), Heinrich Doose (member of the Waffen-SS and driver), Percy Schramm (head compiler of the war journal of the German High Command Operational Staff), Erwin Nagel (German soldier in a convicts detachment), and Heinz Buchholz (member of stenographic service of Hitler's headquarters). Also included are transcribed excerpts from stenographic notebooks of Hitler's secretaries, as well as transcribed and re-constructed records of Hitler's daily military conferences, December 1942 to March 1945 (incomplete). The collection contains three essays in English by George Allen concerning the provenance of the records, as well as four manuscript versions, along with galley proofs and page proofs, of Felix Gilbert's book, Hitler Directs His War (1950), with a foreword by Allen.

Extent: 1 linear feet
From 2007-2012, the Bristol Oral History Initiative Committee organized three oral history projects with residents of Bristol Borough in Bucks County, Pennsylvania. The first project was conducted by Borough students in the 7th and 8th grades. The interviewees were family members and community leaders, each discussing their life growing up in Bristol. The second series of interviews was conducted by 10th and 11th graders, and focused on Bristol veterans and residents on the home front during World War II. The third series interviewed Bristolians who were involved with baseball in Bristol during the 1930’s, 1940’s, and 1950’s. The Bristol History collection of oral history projects, 2007-2012, consists of digital audio recordings of oral history interviews from all three projects, as well as a small amount of background information about the projects and interviewees, some transcripts, and copies of photographs of some of the tri-fold poster boards created by students about the people they interviewed. The collection of oral histories continues as an initiative between the Bristol Cultural and Historical Foundation and the Margaret R. Grundy Memorial Library. (View full finding aid.)
