Series VII: Personal Materials, 1948-2002

Scope and Content

Series VII contains materials related to Larry Spruch’s personal life, rather than his work as a physicist. Many of the materials in this series are maps, souvenirs, and other tourist ephemera gathered by Spruch during his travels around the world. Though much of that travel was the result of Spruch’s participation in the conferences, seminars, and workshops (see Series IV: Subseries C), he made time to explore the area as well. Other materials in the series are related to Spruch’s personal interests, which included theatre and progressive politics. The materials in this series date from between 1948 and 2002.
