2.1:Family Correspondence, 1880-1955
Family correspondence consists of letters exchanged between various Bohm family members during their long periods of separation. The letters describe Bohm's activities in the studio, his wife's worries about finances and raising the children, and the family's increasing interest in Christian Science. Zella's expressed worries about finances are interspersed with descriptions of the children's idyllic summer days living primarily in French coastal towns, and the family's increasing interest in Christian Science. Several letters have annotations written by Bohm's daughter Esther. Approximately one fourth of the Family Correspondence is written in German, with a few letters in French, and there are some typed English translations of a few of the letters scattered throughout. In addition to correspondence with Zella, there is also correspondence with Max Bohm's aunt, Anna Stuhr; his brothers, Henry and Gustave; his parents, especially his mother Emilie; and his children, Esther and Max, Jr.
