Biographical Note

Ernst C. Stiefel was born in 1907, in Mannheim, Germany. The son of Karl Stiefel, a religion teacher, he had two siblings, his brother Rudy and sister Luise. Ernst Stiefel studied law in Heidelberg and Berlin, and was admitted to practice law in Germany in 1933, two weeks before Jewish lawyers were disbarred. He emigrated to Strasbourg, France, and worked for a French insurance company while studying for his French license to practice law, which he received in 1934. In 1938, Stiefel went to England, where he was admitted as a barrister to the High Court in London. Ernst Stiefel emigrated to the United States in 1939.

In spite of his law degrees, Stiefel found it difficult upon his arrival in the United States to procure work in the legal field, and worked as a dishwasher and a chaffeur before becoming a clerk in a law office in 1940. During World War II Ernst Stiefel worked in the Office of Economic Warfare, where he analyzed insurance company records to identify potential German industrial targets. In 1943 Stiefel was drafted into the army, and served in the Office of Strategic Services, later working for the U.S. military government in Germany. His work there helped found the system of restitution and reparation for Jewish victims of the Holocaust. He became an American citizen in 1944.

Ernst Stiefel returned to the United States in 1947, and was admitted as an attorney to the Southern District of New York. At first he worked with the legal firm Cleary & Gottlieb, and from 1971 onward with the firm of the Coudert Brothers. Beginning in the 1950s, he began advising business enterprises interested in investing in Europe. Since his legal work often focused on German-American concerns, he maintained an office in Düsseldorf. In 1995 the German government decorated him for his contributions to German law and German-American understanding.

In addition to his legal work, Ernst Stiefel was active in academia and research. He wrote several books and articles on legal issues, and taught comparative law and related topics at the New York Law School for twenty years. Stiefel also endowed the school with a professorship in comparative law as well as restoring a reading room on its campus. Another area of his research was the work of Jewish lawyers who fled Nazi Germany; he co-authored the book Deutsche Juristen im amerikanischen Exil (1933-1950), which documents the activities of these individuals.

Ernst C. Stiefel died in 1997 while in Baden-Baden, Germany.

Scope and Content Note

The Ernst C. Stiefel Collection documents the work of this lawyer and researcher, particularly his work on the book Deutsche Juristen im amerikanischen Exil (1933-1950). Although a large portion of this collection is made up of research materials, particularly copies of archival records, articles, and offprints, the collection also holds some notes and correspondence, as well as drafts of potential chapters. The two largest areas of the collection are Series II, which focuses on the production of the book, and Series III, which contains research materials.

The bulk of the records in this collection describe the situation and work of German Jewish jurists who left Nazi Germany and settled in the United States. Material concerning this topic will largely be found in Subseries 1 of Series II, in the form of correspondence with other researchers on the fates of these individuals, as well as in Subseries 2, which holds extensive biographical articles on various refugee jurists. A smaller amount of articles on this topic will also be found in the accumulated research material in Series IV.

Documents relating to post-war Germany are also located in several places in this collection. Many of the archival records found in Subseries 2 of Series II discuss the situation in Germany after the war. Published material on this topic will additionally be found in Series IV, along with articles on the Nuremberg Trials. Material on National Socialism and the Holocaust in general are also located in Series IV.

Series I contains a small amount biographical articles on Ernst C. Stiefel. Series III holds documents deriving from lectures given by Stiefel, and include planning correspondence, publicity, and lecture texts.

Scope and Content:

Subseries 1 is comprised of papers derived directly from the creation of Ernst Stiefel's book, Deutsche Juristen im amerikanischen Exil (1933-1950). It contains correspondence, notes, and drafts of parts of this book.

A large amount of the correspondence concerns research gathered by both Stiefel and his co-author, Frank Mecklenburg, for the book. This includes responses to an announcement in the Aufbau newspaper soliciting information on the subject of German Jewish émigré jurists. Correspondence with the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft(a German organization that provided grant funding for the book) is with various individuals associated with the organization discussing research as well as correspondence making mention of the actual grant itself, and the progress of the project. Correspondence with individuals also discusses research on the émigrés. A small part of this subseries consists of correspondence with publishers, both in general and centering on the concluding chapter of the work.

The notes and drafts found in this subseries largely consist of bibliographies, lists of potential émigrés who might be included in the book, and handwritten notes used in research. Drafts of the chapter on refugee jurists in the Office of Strategic Services are also located here.

Subseries 2: Research Files, 1913-1994

This subseries is in German and English.
5 linear feet.
Arrangement:

The research files in this subseries are arranged in the following manner:

Scope and Content:

Subseries 2 is one of the largest areas of the collection, and contains copious amounts of articles and offprints as well as copies of source material from archives and research notes used in the production of the book Deutsche Juristen im amerikanischen Exil. These research materials have been organized into materials pertaining specifically to refugee jurists and scholars and materials relating to post-war Germany.

Folders holding research material on refugee jurists has been divided by the two types of material found in this part of the collection: general files pertaining to refugee jurists as a whole and those concerning specific individual jurists, arranged alphabetically. Users should note that there are two sets of biographical files on jurists, following the original order observed in the collection. Some folders among the general folders also hold biographical material. Among the general files are several pertaining to aid organizations; these provide information on the work performed by aid organizations in assisting legal professionals during and following World War II as well as discussion of the aid cases of various specific lawyers.

Material relevant to post-war Germany is mainly comprised of copies of records held in three archives: the Institut für Zeitgeschichte (Munich), Landesarchiv Berlin, and the U.S. National Archives and Records Administration (Washington, D.C.). These documents are copies of records of the American occupation government in Germany, namely the Office of Strategic Services (OSS) and the Office of Military Government, United States (OMGUS). Much of this material may have been compiled by Stiefel for use in his chapter on the work of German Jewish lawyers in the OSS and Research and Analysis branches of the occupation government. In addition to the archival records, there is also a collection of articles and offprints related to this subject.

Series IV: General Research Files, 1933-1997

This series is in German and English.
6 linear feet.
Arrangement:

Research files are arranged topically, in the following areas:

Scope and Content:

Series IV contains numerous offprints and articles from both scholarly and popular periodicals on a variety of subjects, often including notes and markings made by Stiefel, as well as handwritten notes. The topics include historical areas such as German-Jewish refugee lawyers, Nazi Germany and the Holocaust, and the Nuremberg Trials. Specific legal subjects found here consist of the field of comparative and international law as well as litigation reform, estate and inheritance law, labor law, and the process of collecting evidence and performing discovery in legal cases.

Material on historically-related topics include biographies of German-Jewish lawyers, legal articles on the Nuremberg Trials, and articles concerning the experiences of Jews in Nazi Germany. Material on émigré jurists focuses on jurists in general, as well as judges or lawyers in particular. Included among the folders relating to the Nuremberg Trials are some articles on the occupation of Germany by American forces.

Among the documents focusing on legal research, the most well-represented topic is comparative law, especially centering on differences between the practice of law in Germany and the United States. The numerous legal writings in this area discuss such topics as the importance of lawyers' familiarity with foreign laws, comparisons of the legal system in several European countries, the future of comparative law, foreign opinions of American law and lawyers, and the effects of American law on law in other countries. Some articles on discovery and international tax laws will also be found here. Publications dealing with international labor law largely deal with co-determination and relations between labor groups. Reform and problems of the American legal system are also mentioned here. Another area of the writings here is the growth of litigation and punitive damages in the United States.
