The materials reflect Graham’s interest in the political order that emerged in post-World War I Europe and especially that which developed in Eastern Europe. Graham studied the successful efforts of Finland, Poland, Lithuania, Latvia, and Estonia to secure their independence in the wake of the collapse of the Russian empire. His research also included the failed attempt of the Ukrainian independence movement to achieve statehood.

    Scope and Content of Collection

    The Malbone Graham papers reflect Graham’s interest in the political order that emerged in post-World War I Europe, and especially that which developed in Eastern Europe. Graham studied the successful efforts of Finland, Poland, Lithuania, Latvia, and Estonia to secure their independence in the wake of the collapse of the Russian empire. His research also included the failed attempt of the Ukrainian independence movement to achieve statehood.
    The papers are largely comprised of diplomatic correspondence, reports, and summaries of conversations that Graham had with leading personalities in Eastern Europe and academic specialists in the West. These summaries describe some of the obstacles on the road to independence for the Baltic States, Poland, and Finland. The diplomatic correspondence includes letters from various governments recognizing the independence of these new states.
    The papers also contain several of Graham’s writings on Estonia, Finland, Czechoslovakia, and Ukraine. The card files in the collection provide an extensive bibliography of works on Lithuania, Estonia, and Finland. Additionally, there are some materials in the papers relating to the League of Nations, China, and the Soviet Union, as well as a small amount of documents relating to Yugoslavia, Greece, and a number of other European countries.
