  • Mss 108 Robert M. Travis Papers

    Robert (Bob) M. Travis was an ardent Zionist and one of the first to recognize, as early as 1939, that the Jewish people would be facing a holocaust if Europe’s Jews were not allowed to immigrate to Palestine.  Robert Travis served as president of the Zionist District in Atlanta from 1937-1939.  He later served as president of the Southeastern Zionist Region.  In 1941, in association with Julian Boehm he was instrumental in organizing the Atlanta branch of the American Christian Palestine Committee.  He is also credited with being a founder of Camp Judaea in Henderson, North Carolina. The collection consists of correspondence, a scrapbook from Bertha Travis’ years as Hadassah president, programs, invitations, and tributes to both Robert and Bertha Travis.
