Miscellaneous Manuscript Collection


Held at: University of Pennsylvania: Archives at the Library of the Katz Center for Advanced Judaic Studies [Contact Us]420 Walnut Street, Philadelphia, PA 19106-3703

This is a finding aid. It is a description of archival material held at the University of Pennsylvania: Archives at the Library of the Katz Center for Advanced Judaic Studies. Unless otherwise noted, the materials described below are physically available in their reading room, and not digitally available through the web.

Overview and metadata sections

Because of the nature of the collection, the contents within it vary quite a bit. Many of the folders/collections were found during various inventories of the archives, and as they did not seem to fit into any of the existing collections, were placed here. There are a few collections, however, such as the Samuel Posnanski Collection, the Jacob Hoschander Collection, the Moise Schwab Collection, and the Joseph Zolin Collection, which contain manuscripts that were removed from the Adler Collection. All of these manuscripts or typescripts were submitted to the Jewish Quarterly Review through Adler, and were therefore seen by the processor of the Adler Collection as separate from the collection.
