Contains records of the World Jewish Congress, New York Office, Series H (Alphabetical Files). Records of Series H are sub-divided into four sub-series. Sub-series 1. Alphabetical Files, A-Z, 1919-1981, comprises the bulk of the series, consisting of 370 boxes. Although the materials in this sub-series span the years 1919-1981, the bulk is concentrated in the 1940s to the 1960s. Sub-series 2. Monty Jacobs International Files, 1949-1973, consists of approximately two boxes and contains alphabetically arranged international files of Monty Jacobs, Press Director and Executive Director in the 1950s and 1960s. The bulk of the material in this sub-series is concentrated in the 1960s. Sub-series 3. Publications, 1930-1974, consists of two boxes of publications (Jewish and non-Jewish, WJC and non-WJC), from various countries and organizations. There are also one or two subject files. Additional publications are scattered throughout the other sub-series, but these publications were maintained as a separate sub-series to preserve their provenance, as they were kept in that manner by WJC staff. Sub-series 4. International Alphabetical Files - Correspondence and Clippings, 1949-1981, consists of 18 boxes of alphabetically arranged files on countries and regions. These materials were received by the American Jewish Archives from the WJC in 1987, several years after receipt of the main collection. Though spanning 1949-1981, the bulk of the material is dated after 1952.
