Personal Correspondence Subseries 2 1885-1910

Scope and Contents

This subseries contains letters pertaining to Leib's personal and family life. Included are 140 letters from naturalist Luther Burbank, a close personal friend of Leib's.

Arrangement

The letters are arranged alphabetically by author's last name. Where more than one letter from an individual is included, the letters are further arranged chronologically.

Processing Information

The Luther Burbank correspondence has been included in this category despite its preoccupation with fruit and agriculture. This was done to isolate these particularly interesting letters from the mixed-author, strictly-chronological system used in the fruit and agriculture portion of the collection. This was also done because of the extremely warm and friendly tone of the correspondence, which alone qualifies these letters for inclusion in "personal correspondence."
