Beatrice Johnson Arntson was a legal secretary for Judge William Christianson while he served on the Minnesota Supreme Court. Christianson was one of the judges of the Nuremberg Military Tribunals, a series of twelve military tribunals for war crimes against the leadership of Nazi Germany from 1946 to 1949. Judge Christianson took Arntson with him as his secretary.

In 1996, the representatives of the Nuremberg Tribunal Trials met in Washington D.C. for their fifth reunion on March 22 to 23. Former Nuremberg prosecutors and other committee members gather, including Court Records, Court Interpreters, Secretaries, Research Analysts, Interrogators, Internal Security, Reporters, and Photographers. Arntson created this collection to document the executive trial counsel and the reunion. The collection includes a Nuremberg Directory, newspaper clipping, photograph of the American Judges that served on the Nuremberg Military Tribunals, and correspondence from Drexel A.

Of particular interest is six VHS tapes that recorded the reunion's programs, including presentations, panel discussions, and questions asked by the attendees.

Biographical / Historical

Nuremberg Military Tribunals were a series of twelve military tribunals known as Subsequent Nuremberg Proceedings. Twenty-four major political and military leaders of Nazi Germany, indicted for aggressive war, war crimes, and crimes against humanity, were brought to trial before the International Military Tribunal. More than 100 additional defendants, representing many sectors of German society, were tried before the United States Nuremberg Military Tribunals. The four major publications linked below contain: the official proceedings of the trial of the major war criminals, documentary evidence and guide materials from that trial, the official condensed record of the subsequent trials, and a final report on all the war crimes trials. These trials were held in Nuremberg, Germany, in the Palace of Justice, Nuremberg, after World War II from 1946 to 1949 following the Trial of the Major War Criminals before the International Military Tribunal.
