Series III: Correspondence
Includes correspondence with Isadore G. Mudge and her family regarding her life and work as well as unidentified letters. The letters written by or to Mudge consist primarily of correspondence regarding research questions and the origins of various quotations, the publications of books and articles, including the George Eliot Dictionary and an edition of "Romola" edited by Mudge, and administrative correspondence with officers of Columbia University. The series also contains two accounts of the blitz during World War II, written in Quantock, Essex in 1940 and 1941. Letters to the Mudge family are also included in the series and primarily discuss gifts made to Columbia and Johns Hopkins in memory of Isadore G. Mudge, letters of condolences upon her passing, and requests for biographical information about Mudge. Most of these letters are addressed to Eugene Mudge, nephew of Isadore G. Mudge. The series also contains letters addressed to Mary G. Mudge and Alfred E. Mudge and an obituary from the UCLA Librarian, as well as unidentified letters.
