News from the Schlesinger Library

The papers of Catherine Atwater Galbraith (1913-2008) are now open for research at the Schlesinger Library.

Galbraith was a linguist who lived most of her life in Cambridge, Massachusetts, and traveled the world with her husband, economist John Kenneth Galbraith, who served as the United States Ambassador to India from 1961 to 1963. The 33.65 linear feet of material (1912-2008) includes correspondence, photographs, writings, diaries covering 80 years of Galbraith's life, Atwater family material, and some personal papers of John Kenneth Galbraith.

Processing of this collection by Jenny Gotwals was made possible by gifts from the Galbraith family, the Esther Margaret Ridder Preservation Fund, the Class of 1950 Fund, the Jeannette Ward Fund, and the Mary Maples Dunn Fund.

The finding aid is online at Harvard University's OASIS website:
