Many letters to his sister Anna and father Peter (Papa) were written on a regimented schedule of two letters per week, spanning 1922-1940.
Professional correspondence documents Gassmann's career: as a student of Hindemith, as the director of the University of Chicago's Composer's Series and Music Department, and as a writer of both stage and cinematic performance pieces.
 

Chronological correspondence Subseries 2.1. 1920-1930

Scope and Content Summary

Correspondence in this subseries is organized by year. Notable findings include a 1924 letter wherein Gassmann discusses KKK threats to St. Mary's College campus and a letter from his sister congratulating him on a successful piano recital. The family letters reveal great love and concern for Gassmann's well-being. Many letters from 1934 address the controvery surrounding Hindemith-Furtwangler, and in 1935 there are several mentions of the sand storms plaguing the mid-west. In 1936 Gassmann is quite careful to not divulge or speak out against Hitler's regime. He hints and advises that he will move out of the Oppenheim home, the Jewish home he was staying and no longer felt safe in. He also discusses that year's Olympic games, where he relays the German disappointment that America had won so many medals. In 1937 Remi formally announces to Anna and Papa (Gassmann) his plans to marry Marthe Loyson.
