Urban Planning and the Politics of Expert Internationalism, 1920s–1940s* PHILLIP WAGNER Martin Luther University Halle-Wittenberg n June 5, 1937, the world of Auguste Bruggemann, professor Oemeritus at the Paris Institute of Urbanism, collapsed. On this day, the governing board of the International Federation for Housing and Town Planning (IFHTP) decided to appoint Karl Strölin, a committed National Socialist and burgomaster of Stuttgart, as president. Until the very last moment, Bruggemann had opposed the nomination of Strölin. Unable to alter the course of the IFHTP, * I would like to express my gratitude to Glenda Sluga, Philippa Hetherington, and the Journal of World History’s anonymous referees for their comments, and the participants of the “Liberal/(Il)liberal internationalisms” workshop, particularly Sandrine Kott and Paul Betts, for discussing my ideas. In addition, I would like to thank Henning Türk, Claudia Hiepel, Guido Thiemeyer, Christian Henrich-Francke, and the workshop on “Grenzüberschreitende institutionalisierte Zusammenarbeit” (“Transnational institutionalized cooperation”), where I presented an earlier draft of this article in German. This article incorporates sources from the Archive of the International Federation for Housing and Planning, formerly The Hague, now Letchworth (IFHPA); Cornell University Library, Ithaca, John Nolen Papers (Nolen Papers) and American Society for Planning Official Records
