JAPAN THROUGH WESTERN EYES:
Manuscript Records of Traders- Travellers- Missionaries and Diplomats- 1853-1941

Part 2: Journals and Student Essays
Part 3: Correspondence and Scrapbooks
Part 4: Collected Papers of Brown, Perry and others
Part 5: Writings by Griffis


Detailed Listing - Part 3


Correspondence Description


The correspondence files consist primarily of letters received by Griffis though there are some letters sent to others and forwarded to him. There are also some letters, and drafts of letters, written by Griffis (to people other than his family) filed under his name. Letters sent to family members are filed in Group III, Griffis Family Papers.

The correspondence series is divided into three subseries: Japan Letters, Korea Letters, and China Letters. This arrangement was roughly created years ago and was refined at the item level for filming. Despite the use of the names Japan, Korea and China, this series documents the entire Griffis 'network' and his full range of interest. A group of less important letters was not filmed.

The correspondence is arranged first in alphabetical order, then in chronological order; within each alphabet letter there are the following types of files:

NAME FILES - Filed by sender, in chronological order, fragments and undated items at end.

ALPHABET FILES - Filed by letter (A,B,C.) in chronological order, fragments and undated items at end.

UNDATED, UNSIGNED, UNCLEAR - Appear after Z in the Japan subseries and at the end of some letter files in Korea, China subseries.

KGMF NOTES - WEG's granddaughter Katherine's notes are found in two places: In individual alpha/chrono folders, and in KGMJ files after Z in the Japan subseries.
