  • Description

The efforts of the Rockefeller Foundation (RF) to aid promising scholars fleeing the spread of fascism in Europe in the 1930s and 1940s have been well documented by scholars who have made use of the materials at the Rockefeller Archive Center. Less explored is the story of how these scholars' ideas and thoughts were transplanted into the American soil through the personal and intellectual networks formed between refugee scholars and American intellectuals.
