Scope and Content Note

The Léo Lania papers, 1916-1973, document Lania's journalistic career in Europe and, to a lesser extent, his work in theater and film in Europe and the United States. Most of this material dates from after 1945, and about forty percent of it is in German. The collection is arranged in four series: Correspondence, Writings and Lectures, Biographical Material, and Family Papers. The files pertaining to Lania's work as an author of books, plays, motion pictures, radio and television presentations, and his lectures form the Writings and Lectures series and constitute the major portion of the collection.

The CORRESPONDENCE, 1935-1961, is arranged alphabetically by correspondent's last name; approximately half is written in German, French and other European languages. Although there is some personal and family correspondence and several letters describing living conditions in England after World War II, the majority pertain to his work as a journalist and lecturer. Included are letters confirming speaking engagements, congratulatory letters on the publication of his books and articles and negotiations with publishers; these reveal the ways in which a speaker and writer on contemporary affairs kept his name before the public. Prominent correspondents include John and Brigid Brophy, Pearl Buck, Charles Duff, Max Eastman, Lion Feuchtwanger, Granville Hicks, Hans V. Kaltenborn, Fritz Lang, Walter Lippmann, Louis Lochner, W. Somerset Maugham, Edgar Ansell Mowrer, Erwin Piscator, Arthur Schlesinger Jr., Dorothy Thompson and Sigrid Undset. The subseries of Special Topics correspondence contains letters on a few specific subjects, but similar correspondence is filed in other series of the collection by subject.

The WRITINGS AND LECTURES series consists of material documenting the production of Lania's Lectures, Books, Plays, Motion Pictures, Radio and Television Scripts and Articles, and is arranged by genre and alphabetically thereunder. Supplementing the correspondence, drafts, notes, published works, scripts and other documents collected here are scrapbooks containing reviews and publicity materials. Although many of the titles have been anglicized much of Lania's work is in foreign languages.

There is material on 13 Books, 1936-1961. Lania's most successful books were usually written after a tour of Europe. The collection includes an outline, correspondence with publishers and a mailing list for The Foreign Minister (1956) as well as a manuscript draft of the stage play Lania adapted from the book. Concerning My Father and I (1959), the biography of German actor Joseph Schildkraut, there is correspondence showing the interaction between the biographer and his subject, a manuscript, Schildkraut's notes, and reviews. Reviews and publicity materials form the major portion of the material relating to Lania's autobiographical works, The Darkest Hour (1941) and Today We Are Brothers (1942).

There is some material on My Road to Berlin (1960), the Willy Brandt autobiography ghostwritten by Lania. A portion of this concerns the libel action instituted by Lania against the Custos Verlag after that firm published a personal attack on him.

The collection contains two versions of a proposed book, “The Generals,” one corrected by Lania shortly before his death, and a revised and edited version produced by Franz Hoellering. Lucy Lania's correspondence file records her efforts to have this work published during the 1960s.

Lania's work on the stage in Europe is represented by material, 1927-1938, on fifteen Plays, not all of which were produced. These outlines, drafts, notes and correspondence show his involvement in the development of the German political drama, of which Brecht is the best known exponent. Most of this material is in German or French.

Between 1938 and 1960 Lania was a prolific writer of Motion Picture scripts. The collection contains correspondence, notes, outlines, scripts and articles on many films, some of which were produced in Europe. Some of these manuscripts are in French or German. Included is material on two films on which he worked with the noted German director G.W. Pabst: The Shanghai Drama and The Last Act. There is no material on their German version of Brecht's The Threepenny Opera.

Filed in the Radio and TV subseries are scripts, reports and sketches from Lania's work as a broadcast journalist, 1938-1953. These are all propaganda efforts, especially those done for Radio Free Europe and the Voice of Americirca

The collection clearly illustrates Lania's work as a free-lance writer for United States, German and European newspapers and magazines from the mid-1930s until the end of his life. His articles appeared in Reader's Digest, The Nation, Vogue, United Nations World (not an official publication of the United Nations), Saturday Review, Die Tat, Die Arbeitszeitung and Die Westdeutsche Allgemeine. These pieces contain observations from his German and American travels and analyses of politics and the cold war.

The BIOGRAPHICAL MATERIALS include articles about Lania, publishers' blurbs, a Press Club biographical listing, his United States immigration documents, several passports and numerous versions of his curriculum vitae. Also included is a file of sixty-fifth birthday greetings and details of Lucy Lania's efforts to secure a “grave of honor” for her husband in Vienna.

The FAMILY PAPERS contain correspondence and a record of Lucy Lania's long struggle to obtain compensation from Berlin for injuries to her husband's health inflicted by forced emigration in 1933. Also included is a prospectus for a book, “This Shook the World,” by Lania's son, Frederick Herman. During the last years of her life, Lucy Lania lived in Munich, while her son pursued his architectural career in the United States.
