This 1933 letter from John Van Sickle, a Rockefeller Foundation officer in Paris, to Edmund E. Day, the director of the foundation's social sciences division, reveals Van Sickle's concern about the worsening situation in Europe. He suggests potential funding models and notes that, in light of recent events in Italy, assistance could be extended beyond German academic circles to help young academics like Mario Einaudi who faced expulsion from the universities at which they held positions.
