Dear Lynn and all,

Many thanks for your information. As much as the so called "Pittsburgh Agreement" (which was signed by President Masaryk in Pittsburgh and was a fundamental document for the forming of the First Czechoslovak State) is a keystone in CZ history, believe it or not, that document is *very difficult* to find. I tried the Czech and Slovak Archives and of course did a thorough search on the Internet. No success! Seemingly the original document was never stored in those two countries, and is hidden somewhere in the US. The book that I mentioned previously seemingly has a facsimile. I will try now the Pittsburgh University's library.

Regards
Tom

I did not reply to Tom's message because I don't have the specific
information he requested, BUT
I am >from Pittsburgh originally, and the formation of Czechoslovakia in
Pittsburgh is a big historic deal there. Much of it has been memorialized
at the Cathedral of Learning at the University of Pittsburgh. The
University of Pittsburgh has much of its catalog, especially historic
documents, digitalized online--do a search on their library. (I don't have
the URL but it's easy to search for the University of Pittsburgh library.)
Also, the Heinz History Center in Pittsburgh has an excellent archive and
library. (Off-topic, they have an outstanding collection of Jewish archival
materials in the Rauh Jewish archives.)
