2.7: Henri-Pierre and Denise Roche , 1917-1975

The majority of this subseries contains correspondence between Wood and the Roches from 1940 to 1952 and includes a few letters describing the effect of the war on Roche and his family. One particular letter discusses the German occupation of his house in Sevres and the safety of his Brancusis. From 1946 to 1951, Wood sent boxes of supplies, including clothing and food staples, to Roche in France. The letters describe these transactions and often contain brief lists of what the Roche family requested from Wood. Series 3: Personal Business Records contain the receipts from the shipment of these supplies. Many of the early letters from both Wood and Roche are in French.
Material is arranged chronologically by date.
