COLLECTION DESCRIPTION

This collection of materials was created to bring together and preserve the documentation that now exists on Hu Shih (Cornell University Class of 1914), in the Department of Manuscripts and University Archives of the Cornell University Library. Beginning with the original Hu Shih Collection (#41-5-219), we added his correspondence with Woodford Patterson (6-2-2168) and other friends from his Cornell years, and parts of the Deane W. Malott Papers (3-6-65), the Lincoln Patterson Scrapbooks (#37-6-334), the Cosmopolitan Club Records (#37-4-145), the Alumni Office Records (#41-2-877), and several other items collected individually over the years.
Newspaper clippings were photocopied before filming and articles judged easily accessible, such as those in Asia, were not filmed.
The appendices of The Bulletin of the Institute of History and Philology, Academia Sinica, vol. XXXIV, pt. 2; Taipei, Taiwan, Republic of China, 1963, "In Memory of the Late Dr. Hu Shih (1891-1962)" are bibliographies of Hu Shih's writings in Chinese and western languages and of his poetry and unpublished manuscripts in Chinese. They should be consulted for a complete listing of his work.
