Harry Elmer Barnes

Harry Elmer Barnes (1889 –1968) was perhaps America’s most famous historian who taught history at Columbia University from 1918 to 1929, and at many other prestigious schools afterwards. He published more than 30 books, 100 essays, and 600 articles and book reviews, making him one of the most prolific writers in the social sciences.

Dear Mr. Carto:

The enclosed may interest you in their different ways. You may keep them for your files. I am not dead although I have been swamped for two months. My wife nearly died of pneumonia between Election and Christmas, but is better now.

I have been trying to find out where Rassinier “professed, ” but without any precision. Hoggan will not answer anything.  P Professor and Mrs. Adams have been in Europe this last semester and are due back today. They saw Rassinier in Europe and I am relying on them to give me this information, which I shall send to you.

I also expect to have for you a translation of a good review article on Rassinier’s most recent book which appeared in Belgium.

Best wishes for 1965,
Cordially,
Harry Barnes
