Description
Correspondence, speeches and writings, memoranda, reports, clippings, printed matter, memorabilia, and photographs, relating to Czechoslovak politics and diplomacy, and European diplomatic relations between the two world wars.
Background
Štefan Osuský was born on March 31, 1889, in Brezová pod Bradlom, Slovakia, then under the monarchy of Austria-Hungary. After the revolution in 1848, Hungarian became the official language and Slovak schools, books, and newspapers were banned. Osuský's father, who wished his son to receive the best education, sent him in 1902 to Poszona (now Bratislava) to study at a local Hungarian lyceum. Osuský was, however, soon expelled for his Slovak patriotic feelings in an incident that occurred during a visit by the Hungarian minister of education, Count Apponyi.
