BRANDEIS, LOUIS D. 1856-1941. Typed Manuscript, carbon copy, Plans of Justice Brandeis for Constructive Work in Palestine, containing what is likely the first printed appearance the whole of Louis D. Brandeis's "Zeeland Memorandum",
BRANDEIS, LOUIS D. 1856-1941.
Typed Manuscript, carbon copy, Plans of Justice Brandeis for Constructive Work in Palestine, containing what is likely the first printed appearance the whole of Louis D. Brandeis's "Zeeland Memorandum", 10 pp on yellow paper, New York, [October-November 1920], chipping to corners and edges of paper, some creasing, a few ink lines to first sheet.

After an unsuccessful Jahreskonferenz in July of 1920, Justice Louis Brandeis penned his "Zeeland Memorandum" on his way home aboard the S.S. Zeeland, urging immediate immigration to Palestine, as well as a mechanism for raising sufficient funds through investment to facilitate economic development and health improvement. Brandeis (who had been appointed to the American Supreme Court in 1916) had been elected chairman of the world conference, but had left frustrated by his inability to effect any real movement toward the reality of a Zionist state in Palestine amidst the bickering. This memorandum was controversial at first, but by 1930 it had become a guiding principle in the Zionist movement.
This rare carbon of a press release contains the entirety of Brandeis's momentous memorandum, and though undated, certainly predates the first printing of the Memorandum in November 1920 in The Maccabaean.
