Philip W. Porter collection

Document | Accession Number: 2009.311 | RG Number: RG-10.486

Consists of articles and clippings from various newspapers and periodicals, in German, which were discovered at the German Propaganda Ministry in July 1945. The clippings, collected from American and British print sources, have handwritten annotations and were organized alphabetically by subject, generally related to Jewish themes. Also includes one bound book entitled "High Life de Belgique," published in 1937 and consists of names and addresses of the Belgian upper class, with handwritten annotations, seemingly identifying those sympathetic to the German cause. The materials were collected by Lt. Col. Philip W. Porter, a reporter (and later, columnist and editor) with the Cleveland Plain-Dealer, who worked as a press officer for the Air Force during World War II. Also includes his typed notes regarding his itinerary and experiences traveling in Germany in the summer of 1945.
