Abstract:

Papers of the journalist, propagandist, and writer Lazar Herrmann who worked under the pen name Leo Lania. The bulk of the collection relates to Lania's career as a journalist in the United States and Germany and, to a lesser extent, to his work in theater and film in Europe after 1945; there is little material on his opposition to Nazism or his pre-World War II stage and screen writing. Much of the collection is in German.

Alphabetically arranged correspondence, circa 1935-1961, chiefly relates to Lania's professional life. Prominent correspondents include Brigid Brophy, Pearl S. Buck, Max Eastman, Lion Feuchtwanger, Granville Hicks, Hans V. Kaltenborn, Fritz Lang, Walter Lippmann, Louis P. Lochner, W. Somerset Maugham, Edgar Ansell Mowrer, Erwin Piscator, Arthur M. Schlesinger, Jr., Dorothy Thompson, and Sigrid Undset.

Correspondence, drafts, reviews, notes, and outlines document 22 books, 28 plays, 26 motion pictures, and many radio broadcasts, speeches, and articles. Of particular interest are a fictionalized account of the last days of Jan Masaryk; a biography of Joseph Schildkraut; two autobiographical works; "The Shanghai Drama" and "The Last Act," two films on which he worked with G. W. Pabst; propaganda scripts for Radio Free Europe and Voice of America; and articles for The Nation, Reader's Digest, Vogue, and a number of foreign journals about his observations of European politics and the Cold War.

The processed portion of the papers is summarized above, dates 1916-1959, and is described in the register. Additional accessions date 1923-1941 and are described below.
