OSS map of Trieste/Fiume

Interesting find in the Robinson Map Library today:

This is a map made in November 1945 by the IRIS group (an interim, post-OSS group, but prior to CIA). It shows the actual and proposed boundaries of a fairly troubled region, that between Italy and Yugoslavia, and the Italian population in the immediate post-WWI period. This is an area and a topic I’ve written about elsewhere, but it is interesting to see the OSS basically taking up a question that preoccupied the American Inquiry and the Paris Peace Conference.

(I’ve requested a scan of the map but this is just a quick photo.)
