BOX 1-129a Correspondence, 1909-1977
The correspondence series is divided into ten subseries. Items from a particular person or organization may be filed in more than one series, or subseries, throughout the collection. It will be necessary to review materials in all sections to locate each piece of correspondence pertaining to a given person. The order preserves many parts of a system put in place by Olga Koussevitzky, who maintained paperwork and files for Serge Koussevitzky before and after their marriage.

Alternate or transliterated names or search terms are indicated between brackets following the name of the entry. Additional clarifying information is indicated between parentheses following the name of the entry.
Arranged in ten subseries, roughly ranging from the most significant in "General Correspondence" to the least detailed in "Greeting, Calling, and Business Cards." Correspondence may be arranged alphabetically or chronologically therein.
BOX 1-65, 127-129a General Correspondence, 1909-1977
This material incorporates the portion of the collection which for many years was the only "processed" section of the Koussevitzky Archive; names of correspondents represented were noted in Music Division index files, and the material was made available to researchers. This group of correspondence is now greatly expanded, however. Items found here reflect the many important connections between the Koussevitzkys and leading musical and artistic figures of the first half of this century; also included is correspondence from prominent Boston-based patrons and close friends. In addition, this subseries includes correspondence to and from various organizations and companies.

Names which appear in the General Correspondence subseries also may appear elsewhere in the collection. Letters in this subseries are often more personal or lengthy than those located in other sections of the collection. Each correspondent represented here is listed individually in the guide to this material.
Arranged alphabetically by correspondent.
