In the late 1950s, Strauss was commissioned by the LBI to write a history of the Mendelssohn banking house. Although the history was never written, the collection includes correspondence on the proposal work, working notes and clippings. William Strauss also did some genealogical research while his intention was to prove relations between his family branch and those of famous Jews.
