The Donovan Nuremberg Trials collection consists of nearly 150 bound volumes of Nuremberg trial transcripts and documents from the personal archives of General William J. Donovan (1883-1959). The Donovan papers contain both original statements from the defendants in German and typed translations in English prepared by the Allies.  A portion of this collection has been made available only as PDF files, including the Analysis of the Personality of Adolph Hitler, a report by pioneering Harvard psychologist Dr. Murray, done for the Office of Strategic Services during the war. The Donovan collection copy is one of a few remaining copies of the report and the only one available to the public online.
