Archival Sources

The most useful archival source for the study of the League is its remaining archives, conserved since 2002 at the Bibliothèque de documentation internationale contemporaine. The archives are very uneven; there is virtually nothing concerning the pre-1914 period and very little concerning the internal life of the League before the early 1930s. But at least for the latter period there is very rich documentation concerning the life and activities of the League’s sections and federations (notably cartons 132–84). Issues arising out of wartime justice are amply documented (cartons 195–237, 496–546) as are issues of peacetime justice (cartons 457–95)

The reports to the Ministry of the Interior F7 13086–13089 in the Archives Nationales contain some useful information on the League, notably for the period 1916–18.


Published Primary Sources

Indispensable are the League’s house organs, Le Bulletin officiel de la Ligue des droits de l’homme (1902–20) and Les Cahiers des droits de l’homme (1920–39). Both contain a wealth of (very candid) information about all aspects of the internal life of the League. The Bulletin usually published a stenographic record of the League’s annual congresses; in 1916 and after 1921 they were published as separate volumes.

The local press of the League’s many sections and federations provides considerable insight into how the League operated at the grassroots level. Consulted were:

Bulletin de la section mâconnaise

Bulletin de la fédération de la Nièvre

Bulletin mensuel de la section de Boulogne-sur-Mer
