View Series XV. Travel Notes and Memorabilia
Mumford was associated with some of the leading architects, planners, and writers of the twentieth century. Containing mostly typescripts, notes, clippings, and pamphlets, this series was created to house an assortment of items related to people whom Mumford knew, and it is an invaluable complement to the the correspondence series (Correspondence: Letters to Lewis Mumford and Correspondence: Letters from Lewis Mumford). There are materials relating to Sir Patrick Geddes, Frank Lloyd Wright, Clarence Stein, and Joel Spingarn, among others. The series includes some fragmentary typescripts, as well as notes by Mumford. All of the pamphlets are works by others, and many of them are inscribed or of interest simply in their own right. Researchers seeking information about Walter Curt Behrendt should not overlook Mumford's unfinished work on Behrendt in "Series VIII. Uncompleted Book Projects."
