Graduate Institute of International Studies
Below are Leo’s registration cards for the two semesters he was at the Institute: winter and summer 1939-40. Tuition was 100 Swiss francs. When he first arrives, he is living at the Youth Hostel (“Auberge de la Jeunesse”) and taking two classes from Ludwig von Mises: “International Monetary Relations” and “Problems of International Finances”. He is also practicing his totally illegible signature. By summer semester, starting April 5, 1940, he has moved to rue de Montbrillant (“brilliant mountain”). He’s taking two von Mises classes: “International Monetary Problems” and “Contemporary Political Thought and International Economic Cooperation”.
