Abstract

This paper deals with Charles Pergler(1882-1954), who was neglected in academia but was a major figure in the Czechoslovak independence movement in the United States at the time of the First World War as one of the Bohemian national Alliance members, where he ardently promoted its cause, using media, holding conferences, and appealing to the US government. Pergler served in the Czechoslovak Foreign Service and later as a member of that government's parliament. During and after World War I, as Czechoslovakia Ambassador to the US and Japan respectively, he enthusiastically supported the activities of the Czech legion in former Russian Empire, particularly in Siberia up to 1922. he settled down to teach law in Washington, D.C. and eventually came to Korea in 1946 as a senior legal advisor. Charles Pergler shows a fascinating example of transnational dimension of thoughts and institutional makings, the national independence and legal reform.
