Series 6
Czechoslovakia, 1921-1927
Boxes 24-27; OP 3-4

Scope and Content Note

A large part of Series 6 is printed material having to do with Harrison's editorial work on a Czechoslovakian Junior Red Cross publication, Mesicnik Dorastu Cerveneho Kirze [The Junior Red Cross Monthly]. Copies of the periodical in Czech and in English for the years 1921-1923 and 1925 are included. Also located in this series are other Red Cross publications, guidebooks and maps to Czechoslovakia, as well as Czech children's books.

Some of the more interesting material in this series appears in the subject files and includes information about Czech women, folk arts and customs, and literary efforts. Three folders contain material regarding individuals important to Czech political and social history: Catherine Breshkovsky, Thomas G. Masaryk, Alexander Kerensky and Bozena Nemcova. Of particular note is Fanneal Harrison's first-hand accounts of meetings with Alexander Kerensky and with Catherine Breshkovsky, known as the grandmother of the Russian Revolution. [See Series 8 for photographs of Czech children, scenery and decorative art work.]
