3.1: Friends and Colleagues , 1929-2008

Correspondence with friends and colleagues is limited. Notable correspondents include Royal Cortissoz, Philip Hofer, Louis Kronenberger, Anne Parrish, and photocopies of letters from Tasha Tudor. The most voluminous folders of correspondence are from curator Dorothy Koval, as well as Wendy Swanton and Margaret Winslow, art consultants who helped organize Thayer's artwork before the Archives received the collection. There are a few letters of inquiry about Polly Thayer's family history for genealogical research from researchers and assorted correspondents.
Following the first file on family history, the files are arranged alphabetically by correspondent with unidentified correspondence at the end of the series.
