Custodial History

Donated to the Tamiment Institute Library in 1962. The library was acquired by New York University the following year, and the papers were transferred at that time. The accession number associated with this gift is 1962.010. A second donation of materials was made by Rose Schneiderman's friend George N. Caylor in 1965, when Schneiderman moved into a nursing home. In the 1970s, Rose Schneiderman's close friend Pauline Newman removed a number of her letters to Schneiderman from the collection. Photocopies of many of these letters were retained.
