The Harry L. Ettinger papers contain correspondence, photographs, newspaper clippings, collected publications, and other material belonging to American philanthropist Harry L. Ettinger. In 1966, Ettinger--then serving as the director of the American-Korean Foundation--established a leprosy rehabilitation center in southeastern Seoul known as Ettinger Village. Ettinger was also a close associate of Syngman Rhee, who served as the first president of South Korea from 1948 to 1960. The Harry L. Ettinger papers include correspondence between Ettinger and various Korean politicians; a portrait of Syngman Rhee signed and dedicated by Rhee to Ettinger; individual photographs and photograph albums depicting Ettinger Village and its residents; and art and correspondence relating to the Korean artist, Kim Sou (Kim Heungsou).
