    Administrative History

    The Colloquium Orientologicum was founded in order to provide opportunities for scholars working or interested in the field of Orientology to establish personal contacts, to exchange views and given and receive mutual stimulation. The colloquium was formed in 1939; the present collection includes minutes of meetings to 1964, but there is no obvious explanation for the end of meetings at that time.

    Scope and Content Note

    Minutes of meetings; accompanying these in many instances is a copy of the paper delivered or handouts made to illustrate the topic of the paper delivered. In some cases the minutes give an abstract of the paper delivered at the meeting. The correspondence is primarily concerned with arrangements for meetings, often including correspondence with the meeting's speaker.
