ISADORE WARSHAW PERSONAL PAPERS, ca. 1917-1966

Scope & Content

This material consists of two vertical document boxes that provide evidence of how Isadore Warshaw conducted his business. The bulk of this material is correspondence sent to Mr. Warshaw in response to his research inquiries. Often the individuals are informing Warshaw that they do not have the material requested by him. A number of these letters also state that the individual is not related to someone Warshaw is looking for. Printed advertisements and circulars produced by Mr. Warshaw to advertise his collection also are included among these materials. Magazine articles about the Warshaw Collection and articles that use reproductions from the collection, although not always cited, also are found among these materials. Memos, postcards, announcement cards, greeting cards, photographs, and letterhead stationery make up the remainder of the collection. The material dates from 1917-1966 and is arranged by type.  Container List only available in repository at this time.
