Aldo Leopold papers

Container Title
Series: 9/25/10-1: Correspondence
Scope and Content Note

These files contain correspondence with individuals. Mr. Leopold apparently began keeping these files when he joined the University of Wisconsin faculty in 1933. General folders (labeled A-Z) contain correspondence on miscellaneous game and conservation matters, 1933-1948. For these folders, only indviduals with whom there is considerable correspondence or whose names appear prominently elsewhere in the Leopold papers have been listed. Individuals who were students of Mr. Leopold are designated with an asterisk.

A few folders in this series were deposited in the UW--Madison Archives by various Leopold students and colleagues. Included in these are some of Mr. Leopold's handwritten letters on yellow-lined paper, copies of which he would not have had in his own files.

It should be noted that this is miscellaneous correspondence. Additional correspondence with many of these individuals, and with many others as well, may be found filed according to content in other folders throughout the Leopold papers.

Papers in these folders are generally arranged in reverse chronological order; this appears to have been the order in which AL filed his correspondence.
