Files: 1544-1558

These files consist of inventories created by the Zola Research Program between the years of 1975 and 1991.

letters sent to Zola based on various information including author, content of letter or reference of Zola’s

divided into years by the Zola Research Program staff, and a letter between Hélène Issayevitch and Collette
