Series I: General Correspondence

Call Number: YCAL MSS 43, Series I

Scope and Contents

Series I, General Correspondence, is arranged alphabetically by surname and chronologically, when possible, within files. Letters addressed to Dorothy Pound as well as to Pound are filed here. Significant correspondents and those with three or more letters have been given separate folders; others have been placed in "letter general" files. Some files contain enclosures, including manuscripts, printed items, and third-party correspondence; we have noted significant instances of these. Pound's correspondents frequently sent him copies of their letters to others; we have not attempted to note all instances of this.
