Arrangement and description

Aletta Jacobs' archive consists mostly of letters from women from many countries; it covers the period from 1876 to 1929. Most of these letters deal with several different subjects. It was not possible to arrange them by just one subject. That's why the greater part of the letters in this archive are arranged in alphabetical order, on the name of the writer: from Jane Addams to the Women's Social and Political Union.
Letters and other documents concerning just one subject are arranged under that subject.

The physical extent of the archive is 1 linear meter.
