    Biography

    At the conclusion of World War II, trials of the major German war criminals, at Nuremberg, Germany, commenced November 20, 1945 and ended October 1, 1946. These trials were convened by an International Tribunal of Justices representing Great Britain, France, Russia and the United States. Much controversy resulted over the issues of "ex post facto" liabilities and the responsibilities of subordinates for acts ordered by superiors. Captain Frederick Felton, an American staff officer for the court, collected documents delineating the proceedings.

    Scope and Content

    The Felton Nuremberg Collection contains copies of court transcripts, November 20, 1945 through August 31, 1946; an index; document books and individual responsibility reports.
