Charles A. Platt architectural records and papers, 1879-1981, bulk 1882-1933

Series V: Correspondence

This series consists of personal correspondence between Platt, his family, and social and professional associates. Platt's travels as an art student in Europe, most of which he undertook from 1882-1886, are well documented in transcribed correspondence. Some of the letters from this period appear to have been transcribed twice by independent typists. No original letters from this period were found, though sketches from some of the letters appear to have been clipped and pasted into one set of the transcriptions.

Abbreviations Used in the Series Inventories: ALS (Autograph letter, signed); CAP (Charles Adams Platt); EHBP (Eleanor Hardy Bunker Platt); TC (Typed carbon); TL (Typed letter); TLS (typed letter, signed)

The bulk of the material was donated in 2006 (accession 2006.007).

Materials are arranged in chronological order by year, with the exception of letters of condolence sent to Eleanor Hardy Bunker Platt [EHBP], Platt's widow, in September and October of 1933. These letters are arranged alphabetically by last name of correspondent, as originally filed by Eleanor Platt.
