Thompson, Dorothy, 1893-1961. Correspondence to Alma Mahler, ca. 1937-1958.

Correspondence to Alma Mahler, ca. 1937-1958.

1 item reflects visits of Thompson and Sinclair Lewis with Alma Mahler and Franz Werfel, in Vienna and on the Semmering. The item from Auersperg was enclosing a card from Albrecht Montgelas (enclosure not included), whom she refers to as a friend of Alma Mahler; Thompson was trying to have a copy of Werfel's novel Das Lied von Bernadette sent to Montgelas, who was apparently a prisoner of war at the time in 1943. The 3rd item is a Christmas card from Thompson in the year of Kopf's death, bearing a reproduction of his water-color sketch The Road to Bethlehem.
