Series VI, Zionism-Palestine, begins on this reel, with memoranda submitted by Jacob deHaas, outlining a plan for the industrial development of Palestine. Also found here is early correspondence (February 10, 1905) inviting Brandeis to participate in a discussion of the Zionist situation in Boston, which he declined; as well as routine correspondence for 1913, 1914, and 1915 from the Zion Association of Greater Boston, to whose board of directors Brandeis was elected in April, 1913.
