Series 1
General correspondence, 1881-1938
Boxes 1-5

Scope and Content Note

The general correspondence includes personal correspondence with friends and associates; job inquiries, referrals and offers; personal recommendations; magazine and newspaper subscriptions; book orders; and some correspondence about Herty's research on double halides (1892-1898). There is also some correspondence relating to halide research in Series 2 [John Hopkins University, Dr. Ira Remsen and the American Chemical Journal folder]. For a list of the more frequent correspondents, see the Index to Selected Correspondents.

The correspondence (1929-1938) between Herty and Lois W. Woodford (his secretary, 1917-1933) pertains mainly to office and personal matters. This is an especially helpful guide to Herty's activities between 1929 and 1933. For correspondence with Woodford prior to 1929 see the Journal of Industrial and Engineering Chemistry office correspondence (1917-1921) in Series 3, the Synthetic Organic Chemical Manufacturers Association general correspondence (1922-1926) in Subseries 6.1, and the Chemical Foundation, Inc., correspondence (1926-1928) in Series 8. For Woodford's activities on The Women's Service Committee and other activities related to women in chemistry see Series 3 [Committees, Committee on Women's Award in Chemistry and Women's Service Committee folders].
