Dr. Kraehe, a specialist in European diplomatic history, will study the German policy of Prince Klem-en- s von Metternich, the Austrian chancellor who dominated European politics in the first half of the last century.

On the basis of earlier research, completed while on a Fulbrlght grant in Vienna, Kraehe stated he believes the statesman sought to keep Germany from falling under Russian domination. He said contrary to all existing accounts, desired a strong German union with an effective military organization which would act as a bulwark to Russian expansionism. Kraehe will work principally In Vienna at the state archives and will visit archives in Munich, Stuttgart, and other German cities for materials. He expects to complete a volume on Metternich this summer. His research will provide material for a second volume on the Austrian Met-terni- ch statesman.
