Scope and Content of Collection

The papers relate to Arabian American Oil Company personnel training and education in Saudi Arabia, American educational assistance in the Middle East, promotion of Arab-American cultural ties, and the establishment of American military installations in Saudi Arabia during and immediately after World War II. It consists of datebooks, correspondence, speeches and writings, notes, memoranda, reports, charts, clippings, printed matter, maps, posters, and photographs.
The papers reflect Harry Roscoe Snyder's lifetime of engagements in Middle Eastern, particularly Saudi Arabian, affairs and education. The correspondence and printed matter of the American Friends of the Arabs ( Career file), a short-lived organization started by Snyder and Elihu Grant, attempts to open up conversations among academics and journalists regarding Palestine and Zionism in the U.S. and abroad.
While serving in the military, Snyder helped negotiate an agreement for a U.S. airfield in Dhahran for use during World War II. Because the agreement was not settled until after the war's end and with a brand new airfield built, Snyder was chosen to command the United States Air Force 1414th Training Division in their Saudi Arabian Training Mission. This portion of the Career file consists of materials from the development and implementation of this training program, including correspondence, memoranda, and photographs.
To meet the demands of oil production, the Arabian American Oil Company (Aramco) developed industrial training centers in Abqaiq, Dhahran, and Ras Tanura. Snyder's role as education coordinator in the Training Department of Aramco required him to deliver training and educational services to maintain these centers and encourage the growth of skilled trade workers in Saudi Arabia.
Among the materials relating to industrial training in the Aramco Education and Arab Training file are records of the company's efforts to build elementary and secondary schools in the Eastern province of Saudi Arabia. Reports to the Saudi Arabian government on the state of operations in the company, correspondence and memoranda regarding projects, and charts relating to enrollment and curriculum development of company-built/Saudi Arabian government schools are among the highlights of these records. Other materials relating to education in Saudi Arabia, including schools for girls, can also be found in the Subject file.
As a consultant for architecture firms in the United States and Saudi Arabia ( Educational Consulting file), Snyder's papers include materials relating to the development, construction, and operation of several academic institutions in Saudi Arabia. Although not all of these projects materialized, the records in this series add to the understanding of educational developments within the Kingdom. In addition, the series includes materials from the development of a Saudi Arabian airline cadet program, directed by Hamzah Dabbagh in consultation with Snyder.
The Datebooks include diary entries, notes, contacts, and schedules. There is a single book for each date, with the exception of 1968 and 1971, which each have two.
