The German and Jewish Intellectual Émigré Collections

Papers of German-speaking intellectuals who fled the Nazi regime in the 1930s.

In recognition of the serious scholarly interest in the mass migration of German speaking exiles from the Nazi regime, a German and Jewish Intellectual Émigré Collection was established in 1976 at the University at Albany, State University of New York. This growing collection has been developed since the 1970s through the efforts of the University Libraries and Professor John M. Spalek of the University's Germanic and Slavic Languages and Literature Department. It is housed in the University Libraries' M.E. Grenander Department of Special Collections and Archives located on the 3rd floor of the Science Library. The Department's Research Room is open to the public from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday to Friday, plus Tuesday and Wednesday evenings until 9:00 p.m. when classes are in session, or by appointment. Over the last decade this collection has been used by scholars from many European and American universities, colleges, and other research institutions to produce scores of doctoral dissertations, theses, books, articles, conference papers, exhibits, and videos.

The German and Jewish Intellectual Émigré Collection is comprised of over 95 collections (approximately 750 cubic feet) of personal papers, organizational records, tape recordings, photographs, and related research materials documenting the German intellectual exodus of the 1930s and 1940s. To complement the successful collecting efforts of other libraries and archival repositories in the United States and the German Federal Republic, the Émigré Collection has focused on the careers and accomplishments of social scientists (economists, sociologists, anthropologists, and political scientists), humanists (historians, philosophers, sinologists, and musicologists), writers (novelists, poets, journalists, critics, political writers, and publishers), creative artists (composers, musical performers, and artists), and others. One of the principal focal points of the Émigré Collection is papers of former faculty members at the University in Exile, now the Graduate Faculty of Political and Social Science of the New School University in New York City.
