The Rudolph Binion collection includes thirty-one folders of diverse archival material acquired in the service of Professor Binion's research in Germany. Many documents contain information about Adolf Hitler, including his childhood, youth, political beginnings, and key associates. Dated materials range from 1882 to 2008 and include professional correspondence, World War II testimony, military reports, interviews, articles, speeches, and drawings. One folder contains materials relating to a course Professor Binion taught at Brandeis called Modern European Thought and Culture. Documents of particular note consist of those relating to Hitler’s World War I psychiatrist Edmund Forster, including a rare transcript of an investigation into Forster conducted at the request of a Nazi Party member in the Spring of 1933. A significant portion of the collection is in German. Most documents are photocopies and all handwritten notes are by Profession Binion.
