Overview and metadata sections

Kloeber, Charles Edward, 1869-1933

Charles Edward Kloeber was an American correspondent with the Associated Press of America, working in New York City, Washington, D.C., and several countries in Europe and in Asia.

The collection consists of seventy letters, both holograph and typed, sent by Charles Edward Kloeber to author Margaret Emerson Bailey. Kloeber writes from different cities, such as Belgrade, Constantinople, New York, Paris, Tokyo, and Vienna, where he is working as a correspondent for the Associated Press of America. Included is a letter Kloeber sent to Bailey from Washington, D.C., explaining how he felt alien there compared to all the other places he had visited. Also included is a photograph of Margaret E. Bailey with an inscription on the verso by her brother, Whitman Bailey.

The collection was formed as a result of a Departmental practice of combining into one collection material of various accessions relating to a particular person, family, or subject.

Kloeber's letter from Washington, D.C., and the photograph of Margaret E. Bailey were a gift of her brother, Whitman Bailey, in December 1947.
