Administrative memos

 File — Box: 8, Folder: 1

Scope and Contents

From the Collection:

The majority of this collection consists of Kolenda’s own writing (notes, drafts, source material). The next largest group consists of source material only on four philosophers (Peirce, Rorty, Ryle and Wittgenstein). There is a small quantity of Kolenda correspondence, course material, and Will Rice College material, as well as some National Endowment for the Humanities material.

These papers came from Kolenda’s Fondren Library study and probably represent projects in progress at the time of his death (Dec. 5, 1991).


  • Creation: c. 1950-1990
