Hecksher, spanning the years from 1936 until Panofsky"s death in 1968.

Also present are copies of letters to and from Dora Panofsky; correspondence of Hecksher with Lola Szladits, David Coffin, and others after Panofsky's death; miscellaneous correspondence of Panofsky with Lise Lotte Miller, Lessing J. Rosenwald, Justus Bier, and others; and a few printed articles by and about Panofsky and Hecksher.
