Kurath Era,  1945-1961 [series]:
 
Kurath-Era MED Correspondence,  1945-1961 [subseries]:

Kurath era (1946-1961). Kurath's correspondence has been divided into two parts: the first, in its normal position, is his MED and related correspondence (half of box 8; 0.5 linear foot). Kurath's main correspondents were members of the former MLA Advisory Committee (for example, Baugh, Long, Malone), as well as Allen, the linguist Hermann Flasdieck (Heidelberg), Arthur G. Kennedy (Stanford), Robert J. Menner (Yale), and Randolph Quirk (University College London and the University of Durham), and the correspondence was frequently about details of his editing plan. Kurath was also a prolific writer of recommendations for colleagues and students.

Bibliography [subseries]:

The bibliography has its own category (two-thirds of box 9; 0.67 linear foot). When Kurath arrived in 1946, he found the MED bibliographical apparatus quite inadequate, and during the next three years editors Margaret Ogden, Charles Palmer, and Richard McKelvey systematized and regularized the short titles used for citing texts and reviewed the dates of all manuscripts quoted. Whenever the evidence for dating was inconclusive or opinions by paleographers and editors varied or clashed, the keepers of manuscripts in the various repositories were consulted before the final dates were set. Their replies make up a large part of this category.

Non-MED Materials [subseries]:

The non-MED materials at the end of the Kurath era comprise the equivalent of a full box (parts of boxes 10 and 11; 1 linear foot). In addition to his appointment as Editor of the MED and Professor of English, Kurath continued during his years at the University of Michigan as Director of the Linguistic Atlas of the United States and Canada, and all of his Atlas materials are in this last category. The first item is his Atlas correspondence, which is mainly with fellow American dialectologists (chiefly Raven I. McDavid, Jr., of the University of Chicago, William Moulton of Cornell and Princeton, and others), but also with the British dialectologist Harold Orton, the Romance dialectologist Sever Pop, the well known H.L. Mencken (author ofThe American Language ), and the Linguistic Society of America (of which Kurath was president in 1941). This correspondence is followed by a number of files on Atlas business matters and on two books by Kurath that grew out of his Atlas work. At the end are some files on his University departmental activities.
