Abstract:

The George Marion papers consist predominantly of correspondence, research, and personal material produced between 1936 and 1937. The correspondence consists mainly of outgoing and incoming letters between George Marion and Celia Greenspan written in 1936 and 1937 while both were volunteering in different towns in Spain. Their letters concern their day-to-day activities-Greenspan writes about her lab and hospital work, Marion about his travels to battle lines. In June, 1937 Marion began to pressure Greenspan into severing her ties with the International Brigade and resigning her position in order that she could be with him in Madrid; letters from this period describe her reluctance to leave her post at Murcia. Their letters stop in late July, 1937 with Greenspan expressing anxiety about getting into Madrid without her International Brigade identification. Other material includes ID and press cards for Marion, as well as papers issued by the International Brigade authorizing him to travel in battle areas; a card for the Socorro Rojo Internacional signed by Norman Bethune; Greenspan's identification papers and International Brigade passport; and various printed ephemera, postcards, etc., relating to the Spanish Civil War. There are also extensive research notes, chronologies and typescripts by Marion dealing with the Spanish Civil War.
