Description
Correspondence, reports, statistics, and financial records, relating to railway operation, fuel production, and other aspects of economic reconstruction in Austria, Poland, Czechoslovakia, and Yugoslavia.
Background
The European Technical Advisers was a private American advisory organization created in the spring and summer of 1919 by Herbert Hoover, head of the American Relief Administration, in response to concerns that post-peace treaty demobilization of the Central European network of military advisers would leave a serious vacuum in the coordination of highly-complicated economic and technical functions. Technological novelty, governmental disorganization and international antagonisms, as well as wartime disruption of industrial infrastructures, were major problems threatening the rapid re-establishment of economic stability in the area.
