Summary

Correspondence files of Dr. Adolph S. Oko. The bulk of the correspondence is from Dr. Carl Gebhardt (1881-1934), with a large group also relating to a campaign to raise money for the Domus Spinozana. Present are a number of typescripts of articles and an extensive life of Spinoza. There are a few personal items, but practically all correspondence and manuscripts relate in some measure to Spinoza. Also, nine boxes of clippings relating to Spinoza, a duplicate set of cards for the Spinoza Collection used by G.K. Hall in publishing SPINOZA BIBLIOGRAPHY, the personal cardfiles of Oko and Gebhardt, and one box of Oko bookplates.
