Scope and content
A number of individuals have donated to the World Bank Group Archives small quantities of material about the history of the Bank. All of the donations in this fonds are less than four inches in size (the size of a standard archival box). For convenience of reference the Archives has grouped them in this fonds. Donations of the size of an archival box or larger are found listed as separate fonds.
The materials are principally drafts of papers. They range from a paper by W. Frank Blair, which a former Bank historian believes is probably the first mention of ecology in the Bank; to a taped narrative of William Bennett's flight from Egypt in 1967; to a series of reminiscences by A.D. Spottswood covering his work from Peru to Ethiopia to Thailand.
