Part of Ivan W. Keffer fonds.
File consists of a scrapbook created by Keffer during the time he lived in Berlin and containing primarily newspaper clippings and personal correspondence. Clippings are mainly from German and American newspapers and relate to national and international news; some clippings also relate to the F.W. Woolworth Co. in Germany and in Canada and to personal interests (e.g. a Keffer reunion, a Berlin theatre performance the Keffers attended, etc.). The correspondence includes three letters each from Norman Schnieder and from Keffer's sister Ellie [last name unknown] as well as several letters from colleagues at Woolworth's and other friends. Some of the letters are addressed to Ivan and Mary Keffer and address the death in 1932 of Ivan Keffer's father.
The scrapbook also contains copies of several letters and a certificate from the National Socialist German Workers Party pertaining to the Woolworth Co. in Germany, several internal memoranda relating to the operation of the company, ephemera, and an inventory of Keffer's furniture and household items for customs purposes.
