Series 1: Administrative Records, 1935-1989, undated. 0.33 Linear feet in 14 folders.

Scope and Contents note

This series consists of official minutes, programs, and financial statements related to the life of the Circle as an institution. Official bulletins and correspondence - that is, printed material addressing and concerning the membership in general - are included here, but correspondence addressing individuals is filed under "correspondence." Because most of the records in this collection were generated by Marie-Louise d'Esternaux or (the vast majority) by Lederer, the majority of the correspondence is addressed to Gabrielle Lederer. Some of this correspondence does contain poems, the majority of which are included as membership materials or contest submissions. A very few letters are of a more social or personal nature.
