I also consulted the papers of the Committee to Defend America by Aiding the Allies. While this collection further illuminated the nature of interventionism, it wasn't as helpful as the Fight for Freedom papers. But this is a result of one group being more forceful than the others.
Lastly, I consulted the Allen Dulles and Philip Strong collections. These papers enabled me to fill in some gaps in my dissertation. While they are not a central research focus of mine, these papers were beneficial.
In summary, I am most pleased with my research visit to
the Seeley Mudd Library. While the fellowship amount was modest, it
was enough for my particular project; the fellowship committee's decision
on the amount was well considered. I appreciate their decision.
