Series A

SERIES A AMERICAN (USA) CORRESPONDENCE, 1909-1972

19 boxes

Arrangement

Series A consists largely of correspondence with individuals. Included are a few religious bodies, committees and foundations. In addition to letters there are also writings by some of the correspondents and material about them.

The names are in alphabetical order. Within the folders the arrangement is by date.

The bulk of the correspondence is from the mid-1930s through December 1967 when Sayre suffered a stroke. The first folder in Box 1 contains a small amount of early correspondence. In the same folder there is a list of early correspondents for whom there are individual folders.

Of special note are 6 folders of Woodrow Wilson correspondence, etc. in Box 18.
