Table of contents What's This?
Collection contains many of Alfred L. Guerard's original articles and monographs, both manuscripts and reprints. Materials include works on the history and culture of France, correspondence and writings on urban planning in France and in the San Francisco Bay Area, and book reviews. Unpublished manuscripts found in this collection include PROBLEMS OF THE GREAT WAR (c1915), TRENDS IN CONTEMPORARY LITERATURE (1929), L'AVENIR DE PARIS (1958-59) and FRANCE BETWEEN THE TWO WORLD WARS (c1944). In addition there is biographical material, a bibliography, commencement addresses, reviews of his works, and an incomplete typescript of EPAVES.
Frenchman Albert Léon Guérard (1880-1959) spent most of his life as an American academic, and his work reflects an engagement with both France and the United States. Guérard came to the United States from France in 1906 to teach at Williams College. He taught at Stanford University from 1907 until his retirement in 1946, except for 12 years between 1913-1935 when he was at Rice University and served in the war. He was the author of numerous books and articles on French history and intellectual life.
