Abstract:

Correspondence, memoranda, writings, speeches, reports, military orders, patents, newspaper clippings, printed materials, scrapbooks, drawings, and photographs, relating chiefly to Kowalski's career in the U.S. Army (1925-1958) and in the U.S. House of Representatives (1959-1963). Military files document his directorship of the Disarmament School, U.S. Army Forces in the European Theater, London, England (1944-1945) and the school's training of Allied and American officers for the demobilization and disarmament of Germany; his various assignments during the U.S. occupation of Japan (1948-1952), particularly as chief of staff of the American advisory group overseeing the establishment of the Japanese Keisatsu Yobitai (National Police Reserve) at the outbreak of the Korean War; and his directorship of the Army Command Management School, Fort Belvoir, Va. (1954-1958). Congressional files document his work relating to several labor disputes in Connecticut, his interest in military reform as a member of the House Committee on Armed Services and its Special Subcommittee on the Utilization of Military Manpower, and his opposition to the Vietnam War. Post-congressional files relate to his membership on the Subversive Activities Control Board (1963-1966).

Includes ms. describing the economic, political, and social conditions in Poland (1945); a report (1944) based on interviews of Polish-born soldiers who served in the German Army; and fragments of Kowalski's ms. examining U.S. occupation and rearmament of Japan titled Grace of Heaven, and published as Nihon Saigumbi (Tokyo, 1969); and an unpublished ms. titled Worms in Charter Oak, concerning Kowalski's political career and his relations with John M. Bailey, Democratic state chairman in Connecticut. Correspondents include Bunzō Akama, William Benton, Chester Bowles, Wilber M. Brucker, Arleigh A. Burke, Chester R. Davis, Keizo Hayashi, William B. Huie, Robert F. Kennedy, Hiroo Konda, Keikichi Masuhara, Wilbur D. Mills, Hirokichi Nishioka, Adam Clayton Powell, Abraham Ribicoff, Sam Rayburn, Yoshizō Takeda, and Maxwell D. Taylor.
