  • American Hungarian Library and Historical Society: History
    French and from French into English There is a fine woodcut portrait of Sir Thomas More contained in this edition only which according to Lowndes was unknown to Granger and Bromley and is believed to be the work of Hans Holbein There is also a dedication by the printer to Jane Dormer Duchess of Feria the companion of Queen Mary The invention in dede of the authour seemeth to respect some particular cases which was of him wonderful wittily devuised applying his whole discourse to that peace of Christendome to wit the land of Hungaria which hath bene these many yeares and yet is sorely persecuted and oppressed by Turks One of the most valued possessions of the library is the collection of works on Louis Kossuth It is the largest and most complete English collection of the kind in the world b The Material of the Hungarian Reference Library New York As Prof Duggan told us already in the above article the Feleki Collection was sold by the widow of Mr Feleki after his death to a privately established but also governmentally supported organisation in Hungary the Federation of Hungarian Museums or as Prof Duggan mistakenly calls it The Hungarian National Museum This organisation made the Feleki Collection the basis of the Hungarian Reference Library New York which was officially opened on April 20 1938 The new Reference Library was also given thousands of books pamphlets and other material by Hungarian publishers When we speak of the material of the Hungarian Reference Library New York we mean therefore both the Feleki Collection and the additional titles from Hungary During World War II the Alien Property Custodian confiscated the material of the Hungarian Reference Library and deposited it at Columbia University After World War II the Library of Congress purchased the entire material for a fraction of the real value As practically every library in this country the Library of Congress also has problems of space Undoubtedly because of this problem the Library of Congress found it impracticable to keep this valuable collection as a unit or to make it part of a Hungarian or Ural Altaic Section as the Hebrew Slavic South American etc sections which they do have This unique collection of Hungariana was therefore in danger of being broken up the books distributed according to subject and subdivisions of subjects among the many millions of other books whereas books which the authorities of the Library of Congress did not deem important from their point of view would have been donated to public libraries all over the country Several members of Congress and especially Congresswoman Frances P Bolton intervened at that point and tried to persuade the Library of Congress to sell the Hungarian Reference Library material to an American Hungarian organisation for the same price at which it had been acquired in order to keep this priceless collection intact The Library of Congress was unwilling to do this but agreed to give this material as a loan to a properly chartered American Hungarian organisation The American Hungarian Library and Historical Society was organised for this purpose in 1955 c Other books Since the foundation of our Society in 1955 we have received and purchased several hundred other books pamphlets and periodicals We were also promised valuable private collections by Americans of Hungarian descent as well as by Hungarian political refugees II The Archives The American Hungarian Library and Historical Society on April 29 1958 elected Dr Tibor Eckhardt as Chairman of its Archives Committee whose purpose was defined as that of collecting all documents concerning Hungary s role during World War II particularly the attempts made by various Hungarian governments at concluding a separate armistice with the Western Powers This collection of documents shall primarily serve as a source for future historians It would seem to be of particular interest to inform the Western World of the pressures to which a comparatively small nation may be exposed if wedged in between two overwhelmingly stronger and ruthless powers such as Nazi Germany and Soviet Russia had been Press reports have repeatedly mentioned various negotiations which during World War II Hungarian governments were conducting or trying to conduct in various countries such as Switzerland Turkey Portugal Sweden Great Britain and the U S in order to extricate Hungary from the war However no comprehensive survey or documentation concerning this interesting historical period has yet been assembled The American Hungarian Library and Historical Society wishes to perform this task while the main actors of the drama are still alive It is also of importance to collect available documents on the subject to prevent their possible loss So far the following collections have been donated to our Society a The confidential correspondence of the Prime Minister s Office of Hungary relating to secret negotiations with the Allied Powers during World War II b The entire top secret correspondence conducted by various Hungarian governments through the Hungarian Legation at Lisbon Portugal with the Allied Powers among them with the U S A and President F D Roosevelt c Baron George Bakach Bessenyei left to us eight big boxes of similar correspondence of international importance conducted through him and by him while he was Hungarian Envoy in Switzerland during and after World War II d George Barcza former Hungarian Envoy to the Court of St James London England donated his private Journal to us which gives a day to day account of diplomatically important events during the war years e Tibor Eckhardt added his private collection of diplomatic documents relating to the peace negotiations after World War I and also to his own negotiations during World War II and after He was not only head of the most important opposition political Party in the Hungarian Parliament but was accredited Hungarian Envoy to the League of Nations in Geneva and special representative of the Hungarian Government in the U S A during World War II His collection consequently is of special historic value f
