Walter E. Weyl papers

1862-1956 (bulk 1911-1919)

Papers: diary, 1911-1918 with gaps; selected corrrespondence, 1903 and 1909-1919, consisting chiefly of letters relating to Weyl's published articles and books; writings, 1908-1919, including drafts of articles, printed articles, notebooks and notecards; a scrapbook, 1912-1918, containing reviews and other press clippings, an edited typescript and five letters received; and personal and family miscellany, 1862-1956. Weyl's diary, August 31, 1911-November 2, 1913, March 22-23, 1915, February 9-May 5, 1917 and August 12, 1917-June 9, 1918, records his day-to-day existence. Included are observations on the local and international scenes, plans, work notes, lists of addresses, drafts of letters and philosophical speculations. Among the topics discussed are dramaturgy, feminism, the class war and the possibilities for a novel or play set in Woodstock, New York. The two (actually three or more?) 1915 diary entries describe scenes behind the lines in East Prussia during World War I and the entries from early 1917 record Weyl's observations during travel in China (including Manchuria), Japan and Korea. The unbound correspondence consists of approximately 54 letters received by Weyl, a draft of a letter written by Weyl, a contractual agreement in the form of a letter (involving John Mitchell) and a note with a related receipt (for money transmitted by Weyl to a third party). Among the correspondents are: Jane Addams (1 letter : 1918); Norman Angell (2 letters : undated; plus 1 undated letter in scrapbook); Charles A. Beard (1 letter : 1913); Albert J. Beveridge (1 letter : 1913); H.N. Brailsford (2 letters : undated); Louis D. Brandeis (2 letters : 1913-1914); Felix Frankfurter (1 letter attributed to Frankfurter : undated; 1 dictated letter : 1914); John Galsworthy (1 letter : 1911); Robert M. La Follette (1 letter : 1910); Walter Lippmann (1 letter : 1914); Simon Nelson Patten (3 letters : 1917 and 1919); Eustace Percy (Baron Percy of Newcastle) (3 letters : 1915); Theodore Roosevelt (5 letters : 1912-1914 and 1917; 1 letter on his behalf : 1912; 1 letter in separate folder : 1914); Lincoln Steffens (1 letter : 1912); and Yusuke Tsurumi (1 letter : 1917). Several typewritten letters and drafts to and from Theodore Roosevelt and Weyl (and possibly others), which concern Samuel Gompers and the actions of organized labor in 1914, are housed in a separate folder. Included in the notebooks which document Weyl's writings are additional diary entries for the years 1918-1919. Among other topics, these entries pertain to his health, investments and a February-April 1919 trip to Europe which had an itinerary emphasizing France (especailly Paris) and Italy (including Venice). Entries made during the European trip include Weyl's impressions of the Paris Peace Conference. The personal and family miscellany consists of materials emanating from and relating to Weyl's wife and son or directly relevant to his personal history. Included are certificates, passports and other travel documents, letters, a commercial genealogical compilation and college notes. Two extraneous items present are a Confederate States of America bond, 1862, and a 1917 letter to Dr. Luther Gulick from Woodrow Wilson.
