Scope and Content of Collection

After 30 years of self-imposed exile, George Duca, a former Romanian diplomat, said: "My Romania has disappeared and never will be alive again" ( San Francisco Examiner, May 2, 1978, "The Monarchist Who Lost All: At 72, He's a Winner" by Peter King). Trying to recreate "his" Romania, he built a small island in the Hoover Archives: an invaluable research collection on Romanian modern history. Between 1975 and 1985, he donated to the archives the private papers of his father (former Prime Minister of Romania) and of almost fifty of his friends and collaborators, former politicians, diplomats and writers.
George Duca's papers consist mainly of 120 notebooks of his diary (of significant importance are those from 1914-1949); his correspondence with various royal figures (including Queen Marie, Princess Ileana, and Queen Helen of Romania,), his family (including his father, Ion Duca), and Romanian émigré leaders; his memoirs, Cronica unui Român in veacul XX, including an English translation, and his reports from Japan (where he worked for the Free Europe Committee, under the cover of the International PEN Club) to the Free Europe Committee and the Assembly of Captive European Nations (see Career file, box 98).
George Duca's collection also contains a large number of remarkable prints. Among them, hundreds depicting members of the Romanian royal family, which constitute one of the most impressive photographic collections regarding the Romanian royal family abroad. These are to be found not only in the PHOTOGRAPHS series, but also in the DIARIES series.
