The Simon Papers, University of Birmingham

<p style='text-align: justify;'>The first series of the Simon Papers contains letters and other material connected with Heinrich Simon and members of his family, covering a period from 1844 to 1860. The majority of documents are in the form of correspondence, in which approximately 60 letters were written (some dictated) principally by Heinrich Simon to his nephew Henry Simon. Included are also a few other letters (written or dictated) by Heinrich Simon and sent to his family including his sister "Mitzel" (Hermine) Simon, his partner Marie Gärtner (née Simon), his brother Gustav Simon and his family, his uncle Heinrich Simon the Elder, as well as friends and colleagues. Some letters were written by two or more persons featuring Marie Gärtner (née Simon) and her children Ernst and Johanna Gärtner, as well as Gustav and Antonie Simon. Printed materials comprise clippings (from unidentified publications, newspapers) mostly obituary notices of Heinrich Simon, but also of his brother Gustav Simon and brother-in-law Heinrich Gräff, apart from one that refers to the retirement of Gustav Simon from the Oberschlesische Eisenbahn. This section also contains a voucher, a speech by Johann Jacoby, item HS/A/48, which is a 50 page-handwritten compilation of obituary notices of Heinrich Simon, and one photograph of a portrait of Heinrich's grandfather Hirsch Simon. Inserted is a non-contemporaneous typescript cover letter relating to the collection, dated 21st January 1961 (see Acquisition section).</p>
