Scope and Content of Collection

The F. Marguerite Jacobs-Pauwels papers provide a record of the life and career of a Belgian woman active in public service and charitable work in her native country over a period of 50 years. These activities included caring for orphaned children and wounded soldiers during and after World War I, and heading a campaign after World War II for the recognition of Belgian army veterans and resistance fighters. The majority of the collection is organized into files corresponding to the various institutions and organizations Jacobs-Pauwels was associated with. The largest of these files relates to her directorship of an orphanage in Charleroi, Belgium in the years 1915-1923. The materials in this file include correspondence, administrative records, and reports concerning the operations of the institution. These documents give information on the needs of the children in the orphanage, the care that they received, as well as the various sources of funding and materials that the orphanage received. They also detail the role of the American Red Cross and the Commission for Relief in Belgium (C.R.B.) in providing aid to the orphanage. Another important file in the papers pertains to an organization headed by Jacobs-Pauwels after World War II, l'Oeuvre des Médailles de la Libération et du Triomphe. This organization raised money to provide medals to combatants in the war, including veterans of the Belgian army and resistance movement. The file is largely comprised of correspondence and reports, with details on medal recipients and the activities of provincial committees of the organization. Personal correspondence in the papers includes letters exchanged over many years between Jacobs-Pauwels and Charlotte Kellogg, who participated in the aid efforts of the C.R.B.. There are letters to other correspondents in which Jacobs-Pauwels expresses her views on Belgian politics. The papers also contain a small number of lectures and articles by Jacobs-Pauwels, as well as some writings by other individuals.
