List of Archival Collections

The names in this alphabetical list are represented by archival collections at the given locations in North America. No attempt is made to indicate where papers or letters by one person may also be located in the collection of another. Such cross references are often given in the collection descriptions in the indicated sources.

Some mathematicians have been included for whom there are no known collections of papers. They are here only as reminders of the inevitable incompleteness of the historical record. Still there may be a possibility of filling in such gaps sometime. Corrections and additions to the list are welcomed; please see How to Provide Further Information for the List of Collections.

The key to the abbreviations is given at the end.
