Another significant increment of materials generated a century ago by the Czechoslovak Legions on the Western Front and in Siberia during World War I has been added to the Hoover holdings.  Among the trove’s notable items, acquired from sources in Germany and Turkey, are the memoirs of a Czech Legionnaire, Bohuslav Pekárek, as well as a number of ephemeral publications and imprints.
