Scope and Contents of the Materials

One of the first American volunteers to reach Spain, most likely in the second group of arrivals. He was also probably the last American volunteer to leave, except for the prisoners still in jail. He was in Spain from January 1937 until February 1939. In the Fall of 1938 his assignment at International Brigade Headquarters in Barcelona was to assemble detailed, complete documentation on the military and political role of American volunteers in Spain. In the Spring of 1938 he became the editor of Volunteer for Liberty, succeeding Edwin Rolfe. With respect to the Spanish Civil War, Tisa's writing and editing is particularly important.
