BOX 1-135 General Correspondence, 1946-2016
Correspondence and related material including memoranda, reports, proposals, agendas, minutes, mail and invitation logs, programs, announcements, press releases, invitations, resumes, brochures, ballots, interviews, plans, maps, photographs, news clippings, and other printed matter largely relating to Pei’s professional associations, activities, and friendships outside his architectural practice. A small amount of interoffice memoranda from Pei’s architectural firm is included. Other topics include his personal and professional connections within the Chinese diaspora. The series has been maintained for the most part as it was created and used by Pei’s staff. Letters from individual correspondents may be filed either under the person’s name or institutional affiliation. The chronological date span of folders is occasionally broader than the year under which they are filed. Separate files containing copies of Pei’s outgoing correspondence are available for many years beginning in 1953. Mail logs date from 1979 to 2010.
Arranged chronologically by year span or year and alphabetically therein by name of person, organization, or topic.
