W. C. Simons correspondence
W.C. Simons' correspondence comprises the bulk of the collection, dating from the 1920s until his death in 1952. This correspondence is incomplete; several years are missing. In some years, Simons separated or had a secretary separate folders for specific family members, or distinguish family correspondence from friends and other personal letters; in other years, all personal correspondence was lumped together in one folder. Correspondence was placed in folders roughly in reverse chronological order; this organization has been maintained. Items out of order within a year/in the wrong year have been refiled to the appropriate month and year, but no attempt has been made to completely sequence chronologically.
