Scope and Content Note

The Vlastimil Kybal papers were donated to the Hoover Institution Library & Archives by his son, Dalimil Kybal, in 1982, and consist mostly of his speeches and writings.
As a historian, Kybal devoted great attention to Czech history, namely to the analyses of the ideological roots of the Hussite movement, and, in particular, to the personality of Jan Hus himself. In Kybal's writings (see "John Hus," "Husitske dedictvi: Jan Hus a jeho vyznam pro dnesni zapas"), Hus and his conviction that "Truth conquers all!" served as an inspiration and a symbol of courage in the fight of the Czech and Slovak nation against Nazism. Of great importance are, also Kybal's writings on a Moravian educational reformer, Jan Amos Komensky (see "Komensky a nas zapas," "Komensky jako politik"), and his monograph, Karel Havlicek a nase svoboda.
Also of special note in the speeches and writings file is Kybal's monograph, Saint Francis of Assisi, whose spiritual and social message still attracts devotion of many Christians. The book was awarded the Prize of the City of Prague. The English edition was prepared on the basis of a literal translation from the Czech original, and was published in 1954.
As a diplomat, Kybal contributed a great deal, through his numerous speeches and lectures, to the strengthening of cultural and political relations and deeper mutual understanding between Czechoslovakia and Spain, Portugal, Brazil, Argentina, Mexico, and other Latin American countries (see, in the speeches and writings file, "Cultural Relations between Czechoslovakia and the Spanish and Portuguese Speaking Countries," Jizni Amerika: Prehled hospodarsky, obchodni a politicky, "The Changing Social Structure of the Latin-American Countries," "South America's Place in World Economy," "La aportacion cultural y cientifico de los paises checoslovacos a la civilizacion de America," "Checoslovaquia y Mexico"). There are, however, no documents related to Kybal's various ambassadorships.
Also of great importance are Kybal's memoirs (see "Diplomaticke pameti Vlastimila Kybala," and his writings about political, social and economic conditions in Czechoslovakia, before and during World War II (see, in the speeches and writings file, La republica checoslovaca y su formacion como estado democratico, La republica checoslovaca, su formacion politica y administrativa, su potencia economica, "Checoslovaquia: Su opresion y su resurreccion," "K otazce uznani Ceskoslovenska").
In 1939, shortly before the German occupation of Czechoslovakia, Kybal was retired by Hacha's government from the diplomatic service in Mexico, and he moved to Pasadena, California. He took an active part in the liberation movement of his country, delivering a number of lectures and addresses at many California universities, drawing attention of the American public to the grave situation of the German-occupied Czechoslovak nation (see, in the speeches and writings file, "The Moral Forces of the Czech People: A Tentative Survey of Czech History," "The Collapse of the Czechoslovak Republic through the Foreign Intervention," "The Munich Agreement and Its Diplomatic Background," "The Czechoslovak Republic and Its Formation as a Democracy," "El desmembramiento de Checoslovaquia," "The Central European Problem," "The New Economic Order in Central Europe," "Checoslovaquia: Su opresion y su resurreccion").
Along with his son, Milic, he participated in the activities of various organizations designed to promote better knowledge of Slavic countries and their cooperation with the United States during the war, particularly through the Slavic Radio Program, put on by the Slavic Cultural Association, for which he was a regular speaker.
