Hecker, Friedrich (1811-1881), Papers, 1825-1987, (S0451)
MICROFILM
81 Folders, 2 Oversize Boxes, 7 Microfilm Rolls
Friedrich Hecker was a man who "traveled light" for much of his life, and it comes as no suprise that much one might expect to find in his papers is not there. While there is a dossier of professional credentials (b.1, f.2), the draft of a Romantic play (b.4, f.39), and some student notes (b.1, f.1), there is virtually nothing from his political life before 1848 other than one certificate of election (b.1, f.3, 14.7.1842) and a petition protesting his resignation from the Baden Assembly in 1847 (b.1, f.3, 16.4.1847). It is probable that most of his sensitive political letters were destroyed or seized when he fled in 1848. The undated draft of a German constitution (based ostensibly on that of the United States) is the only important political statement from the period before March, 1848, though it is of great significance indeed (b.1, f.4).
