Detailed Description of the Collection

Note on the Correspondence Series

Correspondence (94 boxes) comprises three series: Correspondence: Letters to Lewis Mumford, Correspondence: Letters from Lewis Mumford and Correspondence: Restricted Files. The container lists provide only the briefest description of box contents for the first two series. For a listing of principal correspondents, do the following title search in Eureka: Lewis Mumford Papers, ca. 1905-1987. A printed alphabetical index of principal correspondents for each of the first two series is available for readers in the reading room of the Rare Book and Manuscript Library. These indexes were generated by the Research Libraries Information Network, into which the correspondents’ names, the extreme years of their letters, the number of letters, and the folder number location were entered. In addition, cross references were created for files of organizations to reflect the names of individuals writing letters within that company or group. The index of principal correspondents for letters written to the Mumfords includes approximately 4,060 file names as well as approximately 1,800 "see" references. The index of principal correspondents for letters written by the Mumfords includes approximately 500 file names and 200 "see" references.
