Introduction to the Collection

The Canadian collections complement materials from the United States, centering on politics, government, and émigré communities in Canada, particularly after World War II. Of significance are collections relating to the joint American/Canadian First Special Service Force (“Devil’s Brigade”) during World War II, Canadian foreign policy, and holdings concerning Russian émigré affairs in Canada.
