[Ernst Cassirer at his desk, Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library]
The Ernst Cassirer Papers è l’archivio conservato presso la Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library dell’Università di Yale che contiene appunti di ricerca, annotazioni personali e lettere tra il filosofo tedesco e Hermann Cohen, Dimitry Gawronsky, Ernst Hoffmann e Raymond Klibansky.
Queste sono le serie in cui è strutturato l’archivio:
- Essays and Lectures includes a number of pieces on Goethe as well as offprints and printed versions of Cassirer essays, the holograph drafts for many of which can be found in GEN MSS 98.
- The Correspondence is organized into General Correspondence, which includes letters from Gertrud Bing and Fritz Saxl, Hermann Cohen, Dimitry Gawronsky, Ernst Hoffmann, Raymond Klibansky, and Aby Warburg, Third-Party Correspondence, which contains two letters between Kurt Reizler and Aby Warburg, discussing the University of Frankfurt’s offer of a chair in philosophy to Cassirer, and Family Correspondence, which contains letters from Ernst Cassirer to several of his immediate family. The Family Correspondence also contains an extensive run of letters from Ernst to Toni Cassirer for the years 1902-1943. This portion of the Cassirer correspondence is Restricted until 2021.
- Series III, Personal Papers, consists mainly of materials documenting Cassirer’s academic career, such as degrees and membership certificates. Also included are a journal, early school notebooks, and a few photographs.
- The Addition also includes a small group of Toni Cassirer Papers which, for the most part, pertain to her husband, almost all of them dating from after Ernst Cassirer’s death in 1945. The files include letters (mainly of condolence), several third-party letters, memorials, articles about Ernst Cassirer, and prints and clippings.
- Series V., Papers from Grandchildren of Martin Cassirer , contains letters (principally to Martin Cassirer), copies of eulogies, clippings, and photographs.
