André Schiffrin papers, 1944-2014

Series I.: Correspondence Files, 1944-2010

Pantheon correspondence, i.e. 1944-1962, including letters of Kurt and Hellen Wolff (original owners of Pantheon before they sold it to Random House) and Jacques Schiffrin, followed by André Schiffrin's correspondence at Pantheon until 1990 and shortly after his removal, including in-house correspondence as well as letters to authors, editors, colleagues abroad and agents, among others. These also include letters written by editors and authors to him in solidarity with his dismissal from Pantheon and a number of angry letters addressed to Pantheon, as well as letters of a personal nature between him and his aunt and uncle (Bella and Serge). Later correspondence in this section consists of letters (and later, e-mails) addressed to Schiffrin after his removal from Pantheon in 1990.
