General Note:
Alden and Allene Hatch Collection
General Note:
The Smathers Libraries acquired the Hatch Papers in several accessions. The first was the papers and tapes relating to We Nehrus by Krishna Nehru Nutheesing with Alden Hatch. These were presented to the university by Hatch in 1968. The second and largest acquisition (Group 1) was received in March, 1975. These papers had earlier been deposited in the New College Library and were transferred from there. An additional accession was made in 1996 (Group 2) from the Hatch home in New York. The second series generally supplements the material in the earlier accessions, but also includes manuscripts and material from Alden Hatch's last book, Buckminster Fuller at Home in the Universe (1974), Allene Hatch's papers, and additional personal papers. Groups 3 and 4, which were acquired in 2002, include additional papers relating to Alden and Allene and the latter group pertains solely to Allene. Additions to the collection, particularly to Group 4, were made by Allene Hatch between 2004 and 2009.
General Note:
The Alden and Allene G. Hatch Papers include manuscripts and related materials, such as notes, correspondence, tapes and transcripts of interviews, of the published and unpublished works of Alden Hatch and to a lesser extent the work of his wife, Allene Gaty Hatch. In addition to their professional work, some personal papers, including appointment books, diaries, correspondence, and family materials are included.
