COLLECTION DESCRIPTION

The papers of Alvin J. Rockwell document primarily his work from 1937 to 1948 as a lawyer and legal advisor for the National Labor Relations Board, the Department of Justice, and the Office of Military Government for Germany (U.S.). Topics covered include revenue and taxation issues with which Rockwell was involved at the Department of Justice, the management-labor relations issues with which he was involved at the National Labor Relations Board, the American occupation government for Germany, and the war crimes trials held in Germany following World War II. A significant amount of the material in the collection is either printed or mimeographed.

The collection is divided into four series: a Department of Justice File, a National Labor Relations Board File, an Office of Military Government for Germany (U.S.) File, and a Miscellaneous File.

The Department of Justice File is divided into three subseries: a Case File, a Subject File, and a Printed Materials File. The Case File contains legal documents, correspondence and handwritten notes for approximately seventy cases with which Rockwell was involved during his service with the Tax Division of the Department of Justice. Also included in this file is one folder of material documenting Rockwell's work reviewing alien internment cases with the Justice Department's Alien Enemy Control Unit during World War II. The Subject File deals primarily with laws, rules, and regulations concerning government tax policy. The subseries consists of documents generated by officials of the Tax Division in preparation for trials, along with one folder of material relating to the U.S. Civil Service Commission's Board of Legal Examiners, and another folder documenting Rockwell's work with the Justice Department's committee on draft deferments for departmental employees. The Printed Materials File consists of briefs and petitions for eighty court cases tried between 1935 and 1944. This material presumably constituted a research file for Rockwell.

The National Labor Relations Board File is also divided into three subseries: a Case File, a Subject File, and a Printed Material File. These subseries are comparable to the subseries within the Department of Justice File although they relate to unions and labor-management relations.

The Office of Military Government for Germany (U.S.) File documents Rockwell's work as associate director of the legal division of OMGUS. It is divided into four subseries as follows: a Subject File, a War Crimes Tribunal File, a Clippings File, and a Printed Materials File. The Subject File documents such topics as bizonal organization, court-martial issues, the Allied Control Authority's Control Council, denazification, prisons, property disposition, reparations, and the United Nations War Crimes Commission. The subseries contains a large amount of printed and mimeographed copies of reports and opinions issued by the Legal Division. The War Crimes Tribunal File contains primarily mimeographed copies of legal documents from the trials of the twenty-one major war criminals tried by the Allied Control Council for Germany, and of the twelve defendants tried by the United States Military Tribunals. Of particular interest is the material relating to the German conglomerates Flick (Case 5), I.G. Farben (Case 6), and Krupp (Case 10). The Clippings File brings together loose newspaper clippings that were scattered through Rockwell's OMGUS files. Topics covered include World War II, the occupation of Berlin, democracy in Germany, denazification, the Nuremberg war crimes trials, defense and security issues, and the Cold War. The Printed Materials File contains books, pamphlets, periodicals and reports related to the occupation of Germany. The file contains materials primarily from the period 1945-48.

The Miscellaneous File concerns primarily Rockwell's private practice with Brobeck, Phleger and Harrison in San Francisco, California. Included in this series are agendas, correspondence, legal documents, memoranda, notes, reports, and clippings about labor relations, and a vellum document from 1622 signed by Jean Francois du Tulot. The subseries also contains several oversize items such as issues of Life, Photo-History, N.Y.Times, Time & Tide, Soddeutsche Juristen-Zeitung, and the U.S. Army Press Digest, and three large certificates that were presented to Rockwell.

Material relating at least generally to Rockwell's U.S. Government career is in several of the Library's collections. Material relating to the Department of Justice are in the papers of Tom C. Clark and J. Howard McGrath. The papers of Paul M. Herzog contain material relating to the National Labor Relations Board. Documents concerning the military government for Germany and the war crimes trials are in the papers of Eleanor Bontecou, Charles P. Kindleberger, Katherine Fite Lincoln, J. Anthony Panuch, Samuel I. Rosenman, and Harry S. Truman (OF 198-B, 325-A, 325-B and the Confidential File). The following oral history interviews include information about the National Labor Relations Board: Eleanor Bontecou (OH 300, p. 6), Millard Cass (OH 375, pp. 1-2, 4-5, 35), Willard Edwards (OH446, p. 47), Milton P. Kayle (OH 369, p. 28), Leon Keyserling (OH 135, pp. 12-13), James I. Loeb (OH 74, p. 106), David Morse (OH 307, pp. 3-4, 10-14, 99-101), John R. Steelman (OH 7, pp. 53-54), and William Tyson (OH 273, pp. 36-37). The following interviews include information about the war crimes trials: Eleanor Bontecou (OH 300, pp. 43-44), Warner W. Gardner (OH 111, pp. 4-6), Richmond B. Keech (OH 35, pp. 17, 26-27), Conrad E. Snow (OH 178, p. 12), and Robert K. Walsh (OH 78, p. 136).
