Jerome S. Buser collection

Collection
Collection Summary
Consists of notebooks, documents, and clippings from the collection of Jerome S. Buser, who was given intelligence gathering and German language training at Carleton College in Minnesota during World War II. This training was done for eventual espionage wherein Mr. Buser would be dropped behind enemy lines to pose as a German businessman. The notebooks contain notes from history, geography, and language classes, demonstrating the training one received for future espionage activities. Due to the end of the war in Europe, Mr. Buser was never deployed overseas. Also includes seven small German propaganda booklets: "Des Fuhrers Kampf im Osten 2"; "Des Fuhrers Kampf im Osten 3"; "Des Fuhrers Kampf in Holland"; "Des Fuhrers Kampf in Norwegen"; "Der Fuhrer und Seine Heimat"; "Des Fuhrers Kampf in Belgien"; "Des Fuhrers Kampf zur See."
Provenance
The collection was donated to the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum in 2012 and 2017 by Carolyn Buser, the daughter of Jerome S. Buser.
