Luise "Luzi" Korngold, 1918-1979
Luzi's materials are the most extensive of the Biographical Materials Series. They consist of personal documents, including her passport, naturalization papers, and Austrian driver's license. Luzi wrote a biography of Erich for Große Österreicher , an encyclopedic compilation of famous Austrians, and a biography of Frederic Chopin, entitled Lieber Meister Chopin , published in 1960, both of which are included in this subseries. The bulk of Luzi's biographical materials are correspondence concerning the book's publication written to and received from her publishers and reproductions of clippings of publicity and reviews of the book. These letters are primarily in German. There are also reproductions of publicity clippings and reviews of the book. A gifted cartoonist, Luzi created short, satirical works in this series, including a fake driver's license for Helene Thimig and a short book about Max Reinhardt and Korngold that are included in the collection. The last items in Luzi's biographical materials are Ein Frauenschicksal im Kriege , a book written by her cousin once removed, Maria Sonnenthal Scherer, about her experiences as a nurse, and two books inscribed to her by writer Franz Werfel. Werfel was another European exile who immigrated to the United States after the Anschluss with his wife, Alma Mahler-Werfel and, along with the Korngolds, became part of the Austrian artist community in Los Angeles.
