Series II. Tatiana Warscher papers, 1912-1997, bulk 1924-1960 39.9 Linear Feet
Series II.A. Letters, 1924-1997, bulk 1924-1947 0.8 Linear Feet
This subseries contains circa 200 letters and postcards received by Tatiana Warscher. The letters, predominately in Russian, tend to be general, with comments on health, travels, mutual friends, and work.
Letters from Michael Rostovtzeff, the historian of ancient Greece and Rome, comprise the majority. The Rostovtzeff letters reflect the correspondents' original teacher-student relationship. Most letters indicate Rostovtzeff's continued intellectual guidance and financial support, including the work of photographing and documenting Pompeii, for which Rostovtzeff paid Warscher through his Yale University research funds. Also included are one letter and several postcards from Rostovtzeff's wife. Vander Poel commissioned English translations of Rostovtzeff's letters. Each letter has been hand-numbered and keyed to the translations. The arrangement of the letters is dictated by the numbering.
Letters from several Russian émigré writers, including Nina Berberova, V. Korsak, Z.N. Gippius, Mark Aldanov, and Ivan Bunin, follow. Each letter is again hand-numbered and provided with an English translation commissioned by Vander Poel. The arrangement of the letters is dictated by the numbering.
