Series 2: Correspondence , 1963-1996
0.7 Linear feet
Box 1

Although this is professional correpondence, there is personal content in some letters to and from colleagues with whom she was friendly.
This series is alphabetized by correspondent. Folders were established for correspondents represented by five or more letters; all others are categorized as "miscellaneous" and filed with the appropriate letter of the alphabet. Because filing is inconsistent, researchers are advised to search by both correspondent's name and institutional affiliation. The bulk of Bowman's correspondence is found among the subject files (series 4) and, to a lesser extent, with her writings and related research (series 3).
