Pocket notebooks and diaries

The directive was clear:   All print publications, no matter the format or content, must be submitted to the Civil Censorship Detachment (CCD) for review.  That meant everything.  So, for example, notebooks and diaries, even if they were blank (see image above), were submitted to the CCD.  In some cases, they were censored.

The notebooks and diaries have not been digitized yet, but they may be used onsite in the Prange Collection.  A basic inventory is available.  If you are interested in using these materials, please contact us at prangebunko[at]umd.edu.
