Series 2: Correspondence, 1919-1977Add to your cart.
Professional and personal letters, including a large amount of double-sided correspondence between Ernest E. and Ruth Blosser Miller during the former's furlough and study periods in New York.  It is evident that several different archives staff members tried to bring order to this series using different organizational schemes.  As a result, the correspondence is poorly organized.
