Vincent Birge papers, 1953-1969.

A significant amount of the correspondence in this collection is from people other than Birge, including John Houghton Allen, Emil White, Pierre Laleure and their wives, Loraine Fowler Birge and Eve McClure Miller. Notebooks Birge kept while secretary to Miller in the 1960's, newspaper clippings, and printed ephemera about Miller, make up the remainder of the Vincent Birge Papers.
