      Headline: The real story of Nazi's Harvard visit
      Date: November 18, 2004

      "AT A conference on the Holocaust at Boston University last Sunday,
      Stephen H. Norwood, a historian at the University of Oklahoma, claimed
      that Harvard University was "complicit in enhancing the prestige of the
      Nazi regime" and cited the "welcome" given to the Nazi publicist Ernst
      Hanfstaengl when he attended his 25th reunion in 1934."

        "Bush - Nazi Dealings Continued Until 1951" - Federal Documents
        By John Buchanan and Stacey Michael
        from The New Hampshire Gazette Vol. 248, No. 3, November 7, 2003

        After the seizures in late 1942 of five U.S. enterprises he managed
        on behalf of Nazi industrialist Fritz Thyssen, Prescott Bush, the
        grandfather of President George W. Bush, failed to divest himself of
        more than a dozen "enemy national" relationships that continued
        until as late as 1951, newly-discovered U.S. government documents
        reveal.

        Furthermore, the records show that Bush and his colleagues routinely
        attempted to conceal their activities from government investigators.

        Bush's partners in the secret web of Thyssen-controlled ventures
        included former New York Governor W. Averell Harriman and his
        younger brother, E. Roland Harriman. Their quarter-century of Nazi
        financial transactions, from 1924-1951, were conducted by the New
        York private banking firm, Brown Brothers Harriman.
