The Dr. Karl Stern Collection, consisting of 15 linear feet of materials, is contained in twenty five acid-free boxes of assorted sizes.
The Stern Collection consists of eleven series: personal papers and biographic information, letters, reviews and articles by Stern, testimony, drafts, speeches and reviews by Stern, other papers not by Stern, religious literature, notebooks and journals, photographs, clippings, oversized materials, and items of interest.
Letters: Letters are organized by language (English, French, German) and the sender’s name, last name first. Unclear names are at the end of each subseries. This series includes letters from prominent psychologists, Catholic intellectuals, politicians, publishers, and many readers of Stern’s books. Correspondence connected to a specific document or conference, however, remains with the associated document in the appropriate subseries; the file entry will note the correspondence.
Reviews and Articles about Stern: This series consists of reviews of Stern’s work and biographical articles. See clippings, subseries 9, as well.
