 INTRODUCTION 
  
 The papers of Baron Adolf Victor von Koerber consist of 53 boxes spanning the years 1797-1968, with the greatest preponderance between 1906 and 1968. They comprise correspondence, personal documents, notes, typescripts, printed items, photographs, scrap-books and press clippings. 
 The papers were acquired by the Library of the University of the Witwatersrand in 1973 from a Johannesburg book dealer, Mr G.Bakker, who had bought Baron von Koerber's library and papers from the Baron's widow, shortly after his death in 1969. 
 In addition to being of von Koerber family interest, the papers reflect the military and political history of Germany in particular and Europe in general between 1914 and 1968. There is much about the two World Wars, the rise of National Socialism in Germany between the wars and the settlement in Europe after the Second World War. The photographic section contains many interesting items relating to aeroplanes and airmen pre 1918 and the typescripts include an account of the Franco-Prussian War of 1870 by a von Koerber ancestor. 
 Baron von Koerber kept up a voluminous correspondence, which resulted in there being 2229 letters preserved amongst his papers. The incoming letters and copies of his outgoing letters are arranged together in two sequences (1) Occasional correspondents, arranged chronologically and (2) Regular correspondents, arranged first alphabetically and then chronologically. Amongst the many distinguished correspondents are Admiral E. Batsch, Sir Henry Deterding, General Ferdinand Deutelmoser, Andre Francois-Poncet, Georg Jarecki, General Erich Ludendorff, Father Friedrich Muckermann, Arnold Rechberg, the Ullstein Family (famous publishing firm), Kaiser Wilhelm II and Crown Prince Wilhelm. For full details of correspondents see the index on page 23. 
 As the papers arrived in no particular order, they were rearranged according to archival form. Details of the classification are to he found on page v. A member of the library staff, Mrs Brigitte Rothgiesser helped to translate and evaluate the papers, which are almost entirely written in German. 
  
 The following abbreviations have been used: 
 MS - Manuscript 
 TS - Typescript 
 Hg - Holograph: a manuscript, other than a letter, wholly in the handwriting of the author 
  
  
 BIOGRAPHICAL SKETCH 
  
 Adolf Victor von Koerber 1891-1969 
  
 Baron Adolf von Koerber was born in 1891 on the Island of Rugen of a distinguished Prussian family. His father was a Doctor of Law and Landrat of Rugen and his mother was of an old Prussian military family. He was educated at military gymnasiums in Stettin, Potsdam and Lichterfelde. In 1909 he was appointed an ensign of cavalry and in 1910 a Lieutenant. 
 From 1910-1912 he saw service with the Danzig Black Hussars and it was during those years that he became interested in flying. In 1913 he had a year's leave during which he visited Italy, the Netherlands and Scandinavia to study art, literature and military science. His travels came to an end with the outbreak of the first World War, in which he served in the Air Force until he was invalided out in 1917. 
 After the war von Koerber went to Munich to practise the profession of journalism. His interest in political journalism was stimulated by the plight in which Germany found itself. He became correspondent for Finnish newspapers and came into contact with many political figures including Adolf Hitler. Like many young men he was captured by the ideals of the National Socialists and on 22 November 1922 joined the Nazi Party with the number 11640. He took part in the Putsch of 1923 and in this year wrote a biographical sketch of Hitler. From the beginning he saw the contradiction between the high ideals of the National Socialists and their actual conduct and soon became disenchanted with the Party. 
 In 1926 von Koerber visited France, where in conjunction with Arnold Rechberg, he worked hard for a Franco-German rapprochement. In an article of 6 May 1927 in the Berlin democratic organ "Vossische zeitung" he prophesied that Hitler was seeking a dictatorship. From 1926 he was on Hitler's black list and came under increasing threats from the Nazis. Living in Berlin, he was Chief Correspondent for the "Neues Wiener journal" but wrote for many other newspapers as well. 
 After the Putsch of 1933 his career in journalism was virtually finished and because of his ant:-Nazi feelings his house in Berlin was watched, his telephone tapped and his movements restricted. His wife travelled outside Germany on his behalf to keep in touch with those, like Father Muckermanr., who had been forced to flee the country. His support of his Jewish friends brought him further into Nazi disfavour. By 1938 he knew war was inevitable and warned the British military attache in Berlin of this (See Documents of British Foreign Policy 1919-1939. Ed. by E.L.Woodward & R.Butler, 3rd series, vol.2, 1938, N0.595)? 
 On the outbreak of the second World War von Koerber wan forbidden to travel and had to remain on the island of Rugen. He continued his illegal activities and passed information to the British Broadcasting Corporation in London and to foreign newspapers. After the war he claimed that he helped to encourage the growing antagonism to Hitler, particularly amongst military men. He was arrested on 21 July 1944, the day after the unsuccessful plot to kill Hitler and was imprisoned in Sachsenhausen. His wife, despite her ill health, was sent to a labour camp. On 15 Feb.1945 he was liberated by the Russians, went to Potsdam and joined free Germany as Comrade 179. Thereupon he claimed that he was a victim of fascism and worked for the de-nazification of Germany. His private affairs were in a bad shape, his house at Hinz plundered and his house in Berlin bombed. 
 In 1946 von Koerber went to Berlin, where he was licensed as a journalist by the Information Central Board, and in 1948 he was flown out of the Eastern Section by the British and went to Baden-Baden as chief editor of the "Europaische Illustrierte". The following year he became Press Chief of the French zone of the Economic Co-operation Administration of the Marshall Aid Plan. In 1952 he went to Bonn to work for the Arbeitgemeinschaft Demokratischer Kreise. From 1958 he lived in Nice until 1968 when, disillusioned with Europe and its politics, he immigrated to South Africa, settling in Johannesburg until his death on 19 November 1969.
