9Title:  Evelyn Manuel Huber collection of Mumford and Huber family material, 1884-1993   
 Creator:  Huber, Evelyn Manuel, 1917-2002 | Mumford, Lewis, 1895-1990 | Mumford, Sophia Wittenberg, 1899-1997 
 Notes:  Materials Separated from the Resource: The story of utopias by Lewis Mumford has been catalogued and placed in the University's Rare Book & Manuscript Library's Rare Book Collection. Call no. HX806 .M7 1922. The bulk of this collection contains letters written to Evelyn Manuel Huber by her first cousin once removed, Lewis Mumford and his wife Sophia. The Mumford's daughter Alison also contributed a few letters as did Sophia Mumford's father, William Wittenberg. Arranged chronologically, the letters kept Huber up to date of the Mumfords's daily activities, including Lewis's writing. Huber took advantage of her famous relative and would often send the Mumfords poems she had written. The Mumfords in turn would provide feedback and encouragement. The remaining part of the collection contains a photo album of the Baron, Huber and Mumford families. The physical album was falling apart so the photographs were removed but their page placement remains intact.
