BOXES 34, 62-68, 75-76 Personal Papers, 1925-1978, undated
This series contains materials from Charles Mingus's life outside his three businesses, though it contains similar documents: correspondence, financial papers, legal papers, medical records, and records of expenses, such as invoices and receipts. Unlike the Business Papers Series, the travel documents in this series are mostly brochures and maps and do not contain itineraries. The files series “Inscribed Material” consists of books whose authors inscribed their work to Mingus. “Realia” contains Mingus’s tarot cards, hair from his son Eric’s first haircut, and Cultivation of Personal Magnetism in Seven Progressive Steps, a book with pages cut out to store his firearm.
