The Beehive: the official blog of the Massachusetts Historical Society

This week @MHS

On Tuesday, September 18, the fall seminar season kicks off with the first Immigration and Urban History Seminar. Join Brooke L. Blower, Boston University, as she explores why Allied strategists allowed Spaniards Marcelino Garcia and Manuel Diaz, two ardent Franco supporters and Nazi sympathizers, to remain in play for the duration of World War II. RSVPs are required and advance copies of Blower's paper "Devil’s Bargain: New York City’s Premier Spanish Shipping Agents and Allied Strategy during World War II" are available to series subscribers. Christopher Schmidt-Nowara, Tufts University, will give the comment.
