Series 1: Correspondence. 1947-1994 undated

Physical Description: Boxes 1-14; Carton 1; Oversize Box 13, folders 1- 2; Oversize Box 14;

Arrangement

Arranged alphabetically, and then chronologically, with incoming and outgoing correspondence inter-filed.

Scope and Content Note

Divided into two sub-series: General Correspondence and Correspondence with Fans. Uchida often re-used paper to make carbon copies of her correspondence to others, so letters may be copied onto the versos of other letters, drafts, or other documents.
General Correspondence, including Uchida's correspondence with her publishers, contains handwritten and typewritten letters, both in original and carbon copies, telegrams, cards, postcards, and manuscript notes.
Correspondence with Fans is further divided into two sub-subseries: Schools and Individuals. Letters written by classes as a group activity are filed under Schools, while letters from both adults and children who did not know Uchida personally but who wrote to express their appreciation of her work, are found under Individuals. Both are arranged first by state of origin, and then, where applicable, by city and school name, with letters from the United States found before that of other countries. Correspondence with Fans contains handwritten and typed letters, cards, and children's art work.
Correspondence is also found in all the other series.
