Series I: National Files and General Materials, consists of a general introduction to the project for the veterans organizations and volunteers that Brooks contacted, along with photocopies of their responses. In each case, the volunteers (or in some cases, spouses of volunteers) that Brooks contacted were not themselves African Americans; they were simply asked to contribute their memories or recollections of any African Americans they (or their spouses) encountered in Spain or knew thereafter. There are two folders for each nation: the U.S., Great Britain, and Canada, followed by one small general folder containing related reference materials, mostly photocopies of photos of particular African-American volunteers and general correspondence. The two folders per nation are each arranged in the same way: the first smaller folder contains a table of contents listing each of the volunteers successfully contacted and the page numbers for their response. It also indicates which veterans ... Read More

The bulk of Series I consists of correspondence written by Weissman to his sister Sara and his parents from Spain between May 1937 and October 1938. Two letters are written in Yiddish, using the Roman alphabet. He wrote long, detailed letters about his journey to Spain, the landscape, his training, life in the barracks, and his experiences on the fronts. The economic hardships that his family was facing at home in the United States are discussed as well as his parents' worries for their son's safety. Weissman's letters provide evidence of his political convictions as well as how his point of view evolved as a result of experiencing war first hand.
