PERSONAL RECORDS [series]

The PERSONAL RECORDS series (1948-1959; one linear foot) is divided into two subseries. The Correspondence subseries is comprised of two groups: 1st group of correspondence, A-Z (largely 1955-1957), and 2nd group of correspondence, A-Z (largely 1957-1958). The correspondence found in these files is, in the main, comprised of letters to relatives and friends and responses to various invitations and requests; the content primarily reflects upon Kresge's home life. There is quite a bit of overlap between the business and personal correspondence.

Topical Files [subseries]

The Topical Files subseries relates to Kresge's activities with industry, educational institutions, and various churches. There is one scrapbook with newspaper articles concerning gifts given by the Kresge Foundation. In addition, there are clippings (primarily from the 1950s), and photographs. The photographs pertain to both business and personal aspects of Kresge's life; the portion of the contents list for Box 7 provides descriptive information to assist the researcher in finding particular images.
