Scope and content
The papers consist principally of photographs from Martin Rosen's period at the World Bank. The photographs are very largely ceremonial: Rosen at the ceremony when a country joins International Finance Corporation; Rosen at an annual meeting; Rosen at a formal dinner; Rosen touring factories and construction sites. These provide evidence of the kinds of ceremonies a vice president was expected to attend, information about Bank and particularly IFC projects, and specific information about, for instance, what the inside of a cotton mill in Pakistan looked like in 1969.
The scrapbook contains clippings and photographs of Martin Rosen's World Bank and IFC career. The album appears to have been a farewell present to him when he left the Bank in 1969. By interspersing clippings and photographs, it places the photographs in context.
The papers also include a copy of Hosai Hyuga's Memoir, translated from Japanese and published in 1987. The frontispiece has photograph of Mr. and Mrs. Simon Aldewereld (he was a long serving Bank employee) with Hosai. The book mentions of the Bank, but it is primarily concerned with the life of a Japanese government official.
