Series III: Columbia University Materials, 1940-1962
Series I: Correspondence, 1951-1962
This series contains Polanyi's professional correspondence from the early 1950s to the early 1960s, most of which appears to be related to his various research and writing projects, and the coordination of various academic seminars and research symposium. As such, most of the correspondents are Polanyi's professional colleagues, the major exception being correspondence with Polanyi's brother, Michael Polanyi.
The correspondence in this series is arranged alphabetically. Correspondence directly relevant to Polanyi's written works has been kept with the appropriate topic in the Writing series. The Weekend Notes series also contains some correspondence between Polanyi and Abe Rotstein relevant to that work.
