Marshall Plan Volume
A one-of-a-kind 3700-page volume containing the President Truman’s Message to Congress, public laws and accompanying reports authorizing programs and appropriating monies, and testimonies by General Marshall and other influential people before Congress.
It was compiled by Mr. Kenneth Sprankle, Clerk and Staff Director, Committee on Appropriations of the House of Representatives, at the request of Virginia Congressman J. Vaughn Gary. Congressman Gary served as Chairman, Special Subcommittee on Foreign Aid Committee on Appropriations during the congressional hearings on the European Recovery Program. The volume was presented to the Marshall Foundation in 1968 by Congressman Gary in the belief that it would be “better preserved and of more use in the Memorial library.”
The searchable volume below was digitized by the Virginia Tech office of Digital Imaging and Archiving whose focus is on “digitizing and preserving collections of importance to the people of the Commonwealth of Virginia.”
