Arthur Greenleigh papers

Document | Accession Number: 1996.A.0030

The Arthur Greenleigh papers contains correspondence, reports, and various other records created by Arthur Greenleigh from the period of 1943 to 1956. From 1943-1946, Greenleigh served with the American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee (JDC), and from 1946-1956, Greenleigh served with the United Service for New Americans (USNA) and the United Hias Service (HIAS). The reports and correspondence from his years at the JDC focus on assisting Jewish displaced persons during and after World War II. The reports give status updates and activities of the JDC, while the correspondence is with both military forces and the JDC headquarters. In contrast, the reports created while working for USNA and HIAS focus on the discrimination of immigration policy for the United States. The correspondence from this time show the difficulties Greenleigh faced in trying to bring Jewish refugees to the United States.
