Collection Overview

Collection Description & Creator Information

Scope and Contents

Series IV, Writings Subjects A-Z - Subject headings are arranged alphabetically, but material under the headings is arranged chronologically. The "Russia" subject file is the largest; Bullard was fluent in Russian and spent a number of years in the country in journalistic and official capacities. His accounts of the Russian Revolutions of 1905 (in "Russia's Revolution: 1905-1906") and 1917 (in "Russia: 1917-1919") might be of particular interest to scholars. Also notable is Bullard's close documentation of the operations of the Committee on Public Information (created by Woodrow Wilson in 1917) in Washington and Russia. Included among the folders on "The War 1914-1918" is a pamphlet entitled "How the War Came to America." Commissioned by Woodrow Wilson as part of the Committee on Public Information's activities, 25,000,000 copies of the pamphlet were printed in a dozen languages. Bullard authored many more careful accounts of World War I Europe, with attention to the post-war tensions among the european colonies that preceded World War II. His involvement in the formation and operation of the League of Nations in Geneva is recorded in several articles and political volumes specifically about the League. A small file of articles from two french socialist newspapers, LES TEMPS NOUVEAUX and LA GUERRE SOCIALE,is under its own subject heading.
