Huxtable (Ada Louise) papers, 1859-2013 (bulk 1954-2012)
Series I. Correspondence, 1949-2012 5.4 Linear Feet (13 boxes)
Series I contains correspondence comprised mostly of letters to Huxtable requesting her coverage of a specific site or building, advocating the preservation of certain buildings or commenting on a previously published article. Included in this correspondence are letters from architects who felt compelled to pen their agreement or disagreement with what she had written about other architects, and sometimes about themselves. Other correspondence includes scheduling and work requests between Huxtable and her colleagues. Huxtable corresponded with numerous architects, politicians and scholars including Hugh Hardy, Richard Meier, Stephen Sondheim, Joel Honig, Raymond Sokolov, Walter Muir Whitehill and Arthur Ochs Sulzberger. Especially complimentary or important letters were filed by Huxtable in "Nice Letters."
Arrangement
Huxtable maintained two systems of arrangement, the bulk of the correspondence is arranged chronologically, but some correspondence is organized by subject or name. A few correspondents appear in both arrangements. Huxtable sometimes grouped correspondence from one correspondent and filed the group by the date of the most recent letter.
