Related Materials

This finding aid relates to just one record group of the New-York Historical Society archives. Although this record group includes the bulk of correspondence incoming to N-YHS throughout its history until 1982, significant correspondence on specific topics to that time can be found in several other N-YHS record groups. Post-1982 correspondence is also found in other record groups. For information about the other record groups and for overall information about the archives, please see the overview Guide to the New-York Historical Society Archives (NYHS Archives).

Processing Information

The record group was physically processed, likely about 1990. In 2015, archivist Brynn White and, in 2016, archivist Margaret Kaczorowski refined the arrangement, integrated additional material, and described the documents in this finding aid. A few additional letters were added in 2017 by archivist Larry Weimer.
