The main series of the collection (approx. 48 boxes) is arranged alphabetically according to people and institutions; a second series is arranged according to subject - for example, Foundations, Journeys, Conferences, Learned Societies, Correspondence with Press and Publishers. A Finding Aid on the folder level, originally entered in a bibliographic database for staff use, of the entire people and institutions series and part of the subject series, has been transferred to Archon; we will be grateful to receive reports on any errors that this preliminary Finding Aid may contain. Material concerning funding and foundations (approx. 11 boxes) are available on microfilm at the Niels Bohr Archive, where typewritten lists of the material may also be consulted. Scientific proposals which are regarded as unserious are filed separately and have not been registered.
Scope and Contents: Bohr's administrative correspondence and his correspondence with the general public. This collection includes all correspondence that has not been classified as scientific or private, and thus contains a broad range of material: from recommendations of workers at the Institute to begging letters from unknown people, from honorary memberships of learned societies to travel itineraries for foreign journeys.
