Series 6: 2015 Addition of Photographs and Personal Materials, 1926-1986
Collection Description & Creator Information
- Scope and Contents
This series is mostly composed of photographs taken at events H. Freeman Matthews attended, namely the Potsdam Conference, the Vienna summit meeting between John F. Kennedy and Nikita Khrushchev, and meetings of the Canada-United States Permanent Joint Board on Defense. The series also contains materials related to H. Freeman Matthews's family, including the daybook kept by his wife, Elizabeth Luke "Frisk" Matthews, and correspondence to H. Freeman and Elizabeth, mostly from Matthews's mother, Mrs. Henry C. Matthews, and his sister-in-law, Polly.
The order in which these materials were sent to Princeton has been maintained.
- Custodial History
As indicated by correspondence with the donor in the process of acquiring this collection, some correspondence of a sensitive or personal nature were removed from the collection by the donor before the materials came to Princeton.
No material was separated during accessioning in 2011. During accessioning of the materials donated in 2015, an earlier draft of the Vichy diary kept by Elizabeth Luke "Frisk" Matthews in Series 3 was returned to the donor.
- Processing Information
This collection was processed by Helene van Rossum on August 17, 2011. A MARC record and finding aid were created at this time. Materials in the 2015 Accession were added by Rachel Van Unen in June 2015.
