Ludwig von Mises is touted as a leader in the Austrian School of Economic Thought. He was born in Austria in 1881 and moved to neutral Switzerland in 1934 during the rise of Nazism. In 1938, the Gestapo took 38 crates of Mises’ belongings from his Austrian apartment. Those crates were eventually confiscated by the Russians and are preserved in Moscow. In 1940 Mises arrived in America and continued his work later becoming a well-known published author. Mises died in 1973 during the sparks of the Austrian Economic revival among Western scholars. In 1978, Dr. Hans Sennholz, an Economics professor at Grove City College, friend and student of Mises, acquired the papers from von Mises’ widow. This collection is over 20,000 pages of his life after he left Austria. It is currently held and maintained in the Grove City College Archive.
