Series XVIII. "Random Notes" and "Personalia"

2 2/3 boxes.

This series of typescripts and notes contains Mumford's most intimate and revealing writings. "Random Notes" and "Personalia" were terms used by Mumford to describe notes which he made throughout his adult life. He almost always identified such notes with "RN" or "Personalia" at the top of the page. It is not always clear how Mumford differentiated between the two categories, so in many cases they are filed together and placed in folders by decade. These notes are a valuable source of information about Mumford's off-the-record thoughts. "Random Notes" and "Personalia" concerning his marriage and extra-marital relationships are restricted and filed separately.
