For European Recovery:
The Fiftieth Anniversary of the Marshall Plan

To mark the fiftieth anniversary of Marshall's speech, the Library of Congress presents this display on the origins and effects of the Marshall Plan. It features photographs and cartoons from the Prints and Photographs Division and items from the papers of Averell Harriman, the Economic Recovery Program (ERP) special representative in Europe from 1948 to 1950, whose collection in the Library's Manuscript Division contains photographs, letters, memos, and printed material that document the early days of this acclaimed international initiative.
