R. Emmet Condon




The Condon Collection consists of correspondence, memoranda, telegrams, official documents, and photographs originating during the 1919 Paris Peace Conference. The primary topic of concern is the issue of the Japanese acquisition of German rights and interests in the Shantung peninsula of China following World War I. A few papers in the collection involve the positioning of Greek troops in and around Smyrna.
