The 4500 items in the Papers of Dr. Meyer Aaron Zeligs (1909-1978) relate to his research
for and publication of Friendship and Fratricide: An Analysis of Whittaker Chambers and Alger Hiss (N.Y, The Viking Press, 1967). The Papers span the years 1923 to 1978, with the bulk
of the material falling into the 1948 to 1967 period.
The collection includes correspondence; memoranda; reports; legal documents; research
notes; lists; transcripts of the manuscript of Friendship and Fratricide, both in loose and in bound form; page proof; index cards; news clippings; other printed
items including related books with Dr. Zeligs' marginal notes; and Photostats.
A number of books have been written and are still being written about the Alger Hiss
case, including books by Hiss and his antagonist Whittaker Chambers themselves. Dr.
Zeligs' Friendship and Fratricide is the only study that approaches the relationship and conflict between Hiss and Chambers
from the standpoint of the psychoanalyst, probing into their childhood and their early
traumas, and into the development of their complex personalities. He became interested
in the two men after reading Chambers' autobiography Witness in 1953/4, and Earl Jowitt's The Strange Case of Alger Hiss (1953). His actual research for his book began in 1959, and the writing was done between
1960 and 1967.
Dr. Zeligs' Papers cover roughly these aspects of his research, writing and publication:
(a) Correspondence and interviews with persons closely connected with Hiss, Chambers
and the Government cases against Hiss such as family members, friends, professional
associates, and attorneys; (b) Research materials such as college and other types
of records, examples of writings and speeches of Hiss and Chambers, both free-lance
and professional, descriptions of their places of residence and their life styles,
statements regarding their religious beliefs and political convictions, court records
included testimonies, copies of letters, handwriting analyses, reviews of pre-1967
books, and newspapers clippings; (c) Drafts of Dr. Zeligs' manuscript in various stages,
critiques, and correspondence with publishing houses; and (d) Publication and post-publication
items such as reviews and fan mail. A considerable amount of the materials were organized
by Dr. Zeligs in 3-hole notebooks which have been left intact. There are a few current
items such as reviews of post-1967 books and a "précis" of a projected follow-up book
by Zeligs entitled (tentatively) "Ordeals of Loyalty and Betrayal: Hiss-Nixon-Chambers."
In addition, the collection includes a group of books on the Hiss case, writings
of Whittaker Chambers, and hard-bound sets of the 1948 Hearings before the House Un-American
Activities Committee, the so-called "Baltimore Depositions" (Alger Hiss v. Whitaker
Chambers, 1948 and 1949), and the transcript of the record of the second Hiss trial
Major correspondents include: Adolph A. Berle, Jr.; Carl Binger; Earl Browder; Helen
L. Buttenweiser; Alistair Cooke; Malcolm Cowley; Robert Crichton; Claude B. Cross;
Morris L. Ernst; Richard H. Field; Felix Frankfurter; Elizabeth Hiss Hartman; Alger
Hiss; Donald Hiss; Priscilla F. Hiss; Thayer Hobson; Chester T. Lane; Isaac Don Levine;
William L. Marbury; John Cabot Smith; Mark Van Doren; and Allen Weinstein. The collection
includes copies of letters of Whittaker Chambers to others, but no direct correspondence
between Chambers, who died in 1961, and Zeligs.
There is a considerable amount of correspondence between Alger Hiss and Professor
Richard H. Field of the Harvard Law School in the Richard H. Field Papers, Series
Alger Hiss, in the Harvard Law School Library.
