Abstract In a 1-page letter to General Donovan that precedes the "Calendar of Events," Dr. Kellerman describes the compilation as "containing the most important dates in the German history and the history of the Nazi Party from 1918 through 1944. The list is not complete, but I believe that we caught the most significant events." In fact, the Calendar is quite detailed; it includes the major events pertaining to German history between the Proclamation of President Wilson's 14 Points on 8 January 1918 and the Allied landings in Normandy on 6 June 1944, as well as many relatively minor events of this period. Kellerman's letter and Calendar are both typewritten originals.
