Collection Description & Creator Information

Scope and Contents

Correspondence written by and sent to Octavio Paz. Includes correspondence to individuals, publishing companies concerning rights to Paz's work, and social cause organizations. Includes some correspondence written by Aurelio Mayor on behalf of Paz when Paz fell ill in 1994. Includes multiple folders of correspondence between Paz and Asiain, and Paz and Krauze. The General Correspondence folder includes correspondence that is of unclear origin, meaning the sender's information is illegible or unknown. Note: Individuals or groups who have significant correspondence present in the collection are given their own file and are filed alphabetically. Individuals or groups with fewer pieces of correspondence present in the collection are filed in letter files (A-Z files), and are sorted alphabetically within each letter file. There are few exceptions, based on notable individuals.

Arrangement

Alphabetically, by last name or first letter of organization name, minor correspondence sorted into letter file (A-Z); contents sorted chronologically starting with undated materials, then earliest to latest date.
