Joseph Borkin papers
Consists of correspondence and research material (photocopied and original) related to the research, writing, and publication of the book "The Crime and Punishment of I.G. Farben" by Joseph Borkin. Among the research materials are court documents from various legal cases against successor companies to I.G. Farben, which were tried in United States courts during the 1950s and 1960s, as well as subject files of copied primary and secondary source materials about individuals, organizations, and products related to I.G. Farben. These latter materials range information about the pre-World War I origins of the companies that comprised I.G. Farben, and the products that they developed, including chemical weapons components, to the legal anti-trust cases waged against I.G. Farben as a cartel during World War II, and the post-war trial of I.G. Farben leaders at Nuremberg for crimes against humanity.
