Content/Description

Divided into two sub-series: Elise Stern Haas, and Walter A. Haas. This series spans Elise's life, including childhood letters and correspondence as a great grandmother. Walter's correspondence begins with his courtship of Elise in 1914, and includes personal and family letters. Immediate and extended female family members are listed by their family names, except in the cases of Rhoda Haas Goldman, Ruth Haas Lilienthal and Rosalie Meyer Stern, who are listed by their married names. Correspondents, such as Dianne Feinstein, Clark Kerr, and Albert Bender, reflect the Haas' interests in local politics, education, and the arts.
