Cook Library’s “Monuments Men” connection

The recent “Monuments Men” film directed by George Clooney and Grant Heslov tells the story of the experiences of just a few of the more than 300 Monuments, Fine Arts, & Archives (MFA&A) program men and women who worked during and after World War II to safeguard Europe’s historic and cultural monuments from war damage. Longtime archivist at the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA), Seymour J. Pomrenze, was one of many so-called Monuments Men.

A special set of books housed in Special Collections & Archives are connected to Seymour J. Pomrenze and the work of the MFA&A program. For more information, read the post “Cook Library’s Connection to the Movie ‘Monuments Men’” on the Albert S. Cook Library blog.
