Finding Aids

In 1999, the UCR Libraries acquired the Gerd Heidemann research collection on B. Traven. An impeccably neat collection of 93 matching black ring binders, it contains the years and years of research materials that resulted from Mr. Heidemann's pursuit of the identity of B. Traven, whether it was in the services of Stern magazine, or his own personal obsession.
