Summary
This collection consists of photocopied excerpts of collections taken from various archives and libraries which hold material on Monnet and the making of Europe. The documents cover the period from the inter-war years to the Rome Treaties and the US-EURATOM agreement, when Jean Monnet exerted his greatest influence. Also contained in this fonds are book extracts and interviews with individuals relevant to Jean Monnet and Europe, as well as Duchêne's documents concerning his research for his book "Jean Monnet: the first statesman of interdependence", Norton, 1994. The documents of this collection offer a full perspective on Monnet's critical years in pursuing European unity and also offer a wider angle on the subject of integration and personalities, policies and events involved. Like another collection of this genre, Jean Monnet American Sources, held in the HAEU, one can see the strong American ingredient in Monnet's career and his relations with top American officials who influenced the turn of events
Biographical or historical data
Duchêne was a bi-lingual British and Swiss national who worked with Jean Monnet first as spokesman for US and British interests in the High Authority of the European Coal and Steel Community, 1952-1953 and later as his Chef de Cabinet at the Action Committee for the United States of Europe, 1958-1963. His relationship with Professor RH Tawney, who had taught him at the London School of Economics, led to the two decisive encounters of his life: the first with a fellow Guardian Journalist, Anne Purves, a highly talented writer who became his wife; and the second with Monnet, who read Duchêne's trenchant articles on the economic and political challenges facing a ruined continent and invited the 25-year old to join him in planning the new Europe. As a key adviser to Jean Monnet, the father of European unification, François Duchêne was present at the laying of the foundation stone of the European Union, and at the High Authority of the European Coal and Steel Community where he was English language information officer and Monnet as president. When Monnet returned to Paris in 1955 to advance the next stage of the EU, Duchêne followed, working until 1958 both as a correspondent for the Economist and an adviser in Monnet's core team. In 1969 he was appointed Director of the International Institute for Strategic Studies, a post he held until 1975. He was selected as Director of the European Research Centre at Sussex University from 1974-1982. In these roles, he was central to the debate on Europe's future, East-West relations and many other aspects of international affairs, maintaining close contact with numerous statesmen, including Zbigniew Brzezinski and other leading figures in Washington.

Instantiates
Note
  • As part of his research, Duchêne photocopied sections of the David Bruce Diary, but since the most relevant sections already exist in the HAEU in the JMAS collections, only those excerpts that do not exist in JMAS have been kept. Likewise with the CEAB2 documents, Duchêne copied those dealing with meetings of the High Authority of the ECSC, March 1953 - June 1955, CEAB 2 (715-726)
  • Descriptions are the property of the European University Institute (Historical Archives of the European Union), but can be freely used provided that reference is made to the source. Described by Mary Carr

Extent
6 linear meters, 359 files.
Governing access note
Unrestricted access
Immediate source of acquisition
Duchêne decided to deposit this substantial collection of material in the HAEU in order to assist other researchers involved in the field of European integration. A contract of deposit was made similar to that which he had previously signed when depositing his interviews with Emile Nöel, former president of the EUI on behalf of the HAEU in December 1989.
Organization method
This collection is artificial in terms of its creation as it is made up of excerpts of diverse collections from different sources. The material has been arranged into two main divisions: 1. International archival material; 2. François Duchêne's archival material. The first section reflects almost chapter by chapter the biography, and within this unit the material has been organised according to subject matter. The original record code in every document description has been placed. The second section has again been arranged according to subject matter.
