Collection Description & Creator Information


The collection is composed of correspondence with the guest speakers. Most folders contain a letter of invitation to speak at the Gauss Seminars, correspondence concerning presentation dates, lodging, and material for distribution during the presentation.

The final folder contains material from a symposium on the subject of Thomas Mann's Dr. Faustus. Symposium speakers, all of whom taught at Princeton at various times, were E.B.O. Borgerhoff (Romance Languages and Literatures); Francis Fergusson, (Comparative Literature); Erich Kahler (Germanic Languages and Literatures); Edmund King (Romance Langauges and Literatures); David Sachs (Philosophy); and Joseph Kerman (Music).
