1 box

This series contains 97 letters written by Brunner to Olive Dutcher-Doggett. The letters are largely written from Switzerland, where Brunner was teaching, to Wellesley, Massachusetts where Dutcher-Doggett was a professor. The bulk of the correspondence is written in German, although 13 letters are in English. The letters indicate that the scholars had a personal friendship centered on their shared academic interests; on several occasions, Brunner asks for Dutcher-Doggett's evaluation of his work. The letters also cover personal matters, including Brunner's feelings about God, and his hopes, joys, and anxieties.

This series is arranged in chronological order.
