Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
The Otto Maenchen-Helfen Papers 1921-1974 (bulkdate 1921-1965) contain the correspondence, publications, research, and writings of multilingual Austrian historian, author, and traveler Otto Maenchen-Helfen (1894-1969). The collection has been divided into five series: Correspondence; Publications; Research; Professional Associations; and Biographical Materials. The Publications and Research series consist mainly of materials documenting Maenchen-Helfen's lifelong study of the Huns and their empire. Within these series are the photographs, essays, maps, and notes of Maenchen-Helfen's work for his book, The World of the Huns. The Professional Associations series documents his tenure at the University of California, Berkeley and his participation in the American Oriental Society and the Society of Asian Art.
