Scope and content

There are two lots of correspondence in this series. The first consists of correspondence to and by William H. Fraser. There is a little, mostly letters to the editor on university topics, before his appointment as lecturer in 1887. The bulk, however, consists of correspondence with various publishers of his volumes of French and German grammar.

The second lot is correspondence received by Helene Fraser from friends and relatives, including her husband and her sister-in-law, Margaret (Emma) Fraser, who regaled her with stories about the Modern Languages Association. Perhaps the most revealing letter is one dated 23 April, 1927 from Helene's old friend, Antionette (Nettie) Bryant, advising her at length on how to handle the relationship between Frieda and Bud.
