About Franklin Norvish

Prior to and after the Second World War, Franklin Norvish, of Needham, Massachusetts,
taught English at Northeastern University in Boston, and was a professor there for
forty years. Between 1943-46 he served in the U.S. Army Counter-Intelligence Corps
(C.I.C.). Housed in a nondescript building in Brookline, Massachusetts, the C.I.C.
conducted background checks on Army employees, kept logs of suspected Communists,
and tracked down and arrested suspected spies. The Brookline building once hosted
special agent training for espionage and undercover work for some one hundred and
twenty agents. Because he spoke some French and German as well as his family’s
native Lithuanian, Norvish was given a counter-intelligence assignment in 1943. One
of his assignments, six months before the D-Day invasion, was to sneak into France
with the French Underground to investigate those who allegedly collaborated with the
Germans. When American troops met the Russians at the Elbe in 1944, Mr. Norvish and
his colleagues were able to interview German POWs who later became valuable in the
development of the atomic bomb. Franklin Norvish received the Bronze Star for his
service.

Franklin Norvish was a member of the Military Intelligence Association of New England
(MIANE), which recently unveiled a 50th anniversary commemorative plaque at the
Brookline location. He died on January 3, 2010 at the age of 98 (Read obituary).

About the Franklin Norvish World War II Papers

The Franklin Norvish collection is primarily dominated by Nazi documents, from
postcards to propaganda, history books to art. Their value lies in the glimpses they
offer into the hearts and minds of the men and women who joined Hitler’s movement.
Postcards of German warplanes—called “Junkers”— reveal the pride that Nazis took
in their war effort, and many should also be considered Nazi propaganda. Among the
other items designed to instill a proud sense of German national identity is a
viewbook that lays idyllic rural scenes of the German countryside side by side with
images of Nazi rallies and romantic portraits of historic German buildings. Also of
note in this series is a nationalist history of the German people from prehistory to
the rise of Hitler entitled, “The Path to the Reich,” a book detailing new German
paintings (“Die neue deutsche Malerei”), a certificate of gratitude for a woman who
provided winter clothing to German soldiers on the front, and an invitation in
French to a funeral service for Adolf Hitler at the Arc de Triomphe.

In addition to pro-German propaganda, Norvish also managed to collect anti-American
and anti-Semitic materials that railed against Americans and Jews. Included is a
print of an American dollar bill that opens to declare that its symbols are of
Hebrew origin and that it’s paying for the “Jewish war,” as well as a book critical
of the capitalist United States and sarcastically titled “In God’s Own Land,” and an
anti-Semitic pamphlet published in New York entitled, “Why are Jews Persecuted for
Their Religion?”

Alongside Norvish’s German materials, the “American Documents” series is notable for
its “black lists,” or profiles of Nazi espionage agents in occupied France. Such
documents offer insight not only into the characters who worked with the Nazi
occupation in France, but also into the inner workings of the U.S. Army’s
Counter-Intelligence Corps in which Norvish played a part. Also within this series
is a ten-page press release from the War Department that details new policies for
African-Americans in the postwar army, a document that may be of interest to anyone
researching diversity or civil rights in the armed forces of the period. The
collection also includes, in the last two series, six maps and a fairly notable
inventory of Stars and Stripes newspapers from July 1944 until June 1945.

Researchers ought to take note that MS 228, the H. Wentworth Eldredge partial
autobiography, was originally contained in the collection but has since been
separated.
