    Biography/History

    During the 1950s, Munn Feinberg established a weekly intellectual meeting with the aim of furthering education of a group of local physicians, dentists, businessmen, and other professionals in the Los Angeles area. Known informally as "The Monday Night Class," the lectures ranged in topics from American foriegn policy and international affairs to literature and philosophy. From 1963 until the mid 1970s the class was expanded and administrated by Sally Anais Naiditch (1921-2002), who was responsible for seeking out lecturers and often times hosting the class, which moved around to the homes of different members. Naiditch documented this unusual educational opprotunity for accomplished professionals in Los Angeles by audio recording the lectures and discussions using mostly reel-to-reel format.

    Scope and Content

    The collection is made up of an estimated 168 reel-to-reel and cassette tape audio recordings of lectures on topics ranging from world affairs and American foreign policy to literature and philosophy. Most lectures pertain to the humanities and social sciences. Specific topics are descriped in the scope and content note of each folder; lecture subjects include international relations, religion, culture, political policy and philosophy, European and American history, art, literature, and aesthetics. Each reel-to-reel audio tape recording contains multiple lectures, and the materials are arranged in chronological order.
