Series XXVII. Supplementary Carnap Material with Varied Provenance, 1913-2007

Scope and Content Notes:

This material was received after the original acquisition of the Carnap Papers, mostly by donation or exchange of photocopies with other repositories. Besides correspondence with, among others, Flitner, Dingler, Quine, Gödel, and Neurath, some additional formats can be found, such as an anecdote by Peter Achinstein about a meeting with Carnap and others, manuscript drafts by others, and a book list of Carnap's library. In some cases, a sheet informing about the provenance of the material was included at the beginning of the file folder. This sheet carries its own number and is included in the total item count.
