Scope and Contents

From the Collection:

The Mae Ludemann papers date from 1926 to 1943 and measure 2 linear inches. The papers are arranged in three series: European Trip, Student Records, and Photographs.

The European Trip series (1929) includes Ludemann's travel diary, correspondence, and travel literature, as well as an article written by Ludemann's niece which appeared in Victoria Magazine in the June 1997 issue.

The Student Record series (1926 and undated) include official transcripts for the University of Iowa and the University of California, Los Angeles, as well as certificates and a diploma.

The Photographs series (dates unknown) include an album of candid snapshots as well as a sorority photograph. The majority of the photographs are in the album, and consist mainly of pictures from Ludemann's college years and early in her teaching career. The pictures include ones of Ludemann's friends, sorority sisters, as well as herself and her mother. Many of the photographs come from Ludemann's numerous trips abroad to such places as the Colorado Rockies, Lake Louise, Canada, and the Grand Canyon.
