Documents: William's University Years
June 1931 — August, 1935

For some reason, this collection has no letters from Philinda during her college years at Swarthmore, so the University section contains only William's Dartmouth correspondence. Also, William's letters from graduate school at Tufts University are in a section of their own.

Processing note: As there are several hundred letters from William's college and grad school years, I will be processing each academic year's letters separately. Between working on college years, I plan to process documents from other time-periods in order to provide material to satisfy a variety of interests.
