2.2: Monuments Men , 1930-1978, bulk 1943-1950

This subseries consists of letters exchanged between Stout and other Monuments Men such as Paul Coremans, Ardelia Hall, Thomas Carr Howe, Lincoln Kirstein, Stephen Kovalyk, Lamont Moore, Theodore Sizer, Craig Hugh Smyth, Langdon Warner, and many others. Several of the Monuments Men went on to prominent careers in the arts and Stout stayed in contact. There is also one letter from Haruki Watsuji, the mayor of Kyoto while Stout was serving as a Monuments Man in Japan after the war. The letter mentions Stout and fellow Monuments Man Langdon Warner visiting Kyoto. There is also a Christmas card signed by members of the U.S. Twelfth Army Group. A few records are in French.
