'Special Boxes'

Archive Unit

Scope and Content

The boxes contain personal and business correspondence, photographs, newspaper clippings, telegrams and reports for the League of Nations. The documents were originally filed within journals 1/1/1-5, and were extracted and placed within a series of five 'Special Boxes' by Elliott Felkin. He gave each document a reference number which indicates the journal volume to which it relates, followed by a consecutive item number (eg. 7.27 is 'Vol. 7', item number 27). This two-digit number is also recorded on the appropriate page in journals 1/1/1-5. Also noted on each document is the page number of the journal to which it had previously been pinned.

The documents cover the years when he was a student at King's College, Cambridge, an interpreter at Frongoch Prisoner of War Camp near Bala, Wales, later transferred to a Camp at Blandford, Dorset, a personal assistant to Sir Arthur Salter (Secretary-General of the Reparations Commission), a member of the Finance Section of the Commission, and a member of the Secretariat of the League of Nations in the Financial Section and Economic Intelligence Service.
