Scope and Contents

From the Series:

Dealing exclusively with the Dreyfus Affair, the newspaper clippings date primarily from the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. The collection also contains clippings touching on various repercussions of the Affair through the 1940s. The majority of the clippings represent the anti-Semitic, anti-Dreyfusard press. As well as articles, these clippings include many photos and cartoons depicting prominent persons and scenes related to the Affair.   These articles come, for the most part, from large and prominent newspapers, such as [i]Le Temps[/i], [i]Journal de Geneve[/i], [i]Petit Temps[/i], and [i]Libre Parole[/i]. There are a few series of recurring articles, such as the "Carnets de Schwarzkoppen," and the "Rapports de Schwarzkoppen et la Presse." Occasionally, the series includes clippings of the same article reprinted in various newspapers, such as Zola’s “J’accuse.” When not directly related to the Dreyfus Affair, the clippings outline growing Nationalist and anti-Semitic movements in France.   The series also contains a number of cultural artifacts related to the Dreyfus Affair. These include such items as a theater program for a 1930s play which depicted the Affair, postcards that depicted rumored scenes from the Affair, and drafts of books and essays relating to Dreyfus.   Finally, this series includes microfilm of several French newspapers from the time period of the Dreyfus Affair.
