The Simon Papers, University of Birmingham

<p style='text-align: justify;'>The third series of the Simon Papers contains letters and other material connected with Heinrich Simon and members of his family, covering a period from 1807 to 1848. The majority of documents are in the form of correspondence comprising 112 letters. The bulk of the letters were written principally by Heinrich's father Herrmann Simon to his brother Heinrich Simon the Elder. Some letters were written and include greetings or postscripts by two or more persons featuring Herrmann’s family members, including his wife Minna Simon and their children Heinrich, Gustav, Julie, Hermine and Ludowika Simon, as well as Auguste Gräff (née Simon) and her daughter Emmy Gräff; also his brothers Ludwig and Otto Simon and nephew Carl Levy. Some letters are addressed to more than one person, including Heinrich Simon the Elder’s first wife Marianne Simon (née Rohde) and his second wife Auguste Simon (née Göring). Two letters were written by Heinrich Simon the Elder, Louise Bock (née Simon) and Auguste Fischer (née Simon) and one was sent to Minna Simon by Heinrich Simon the Elder and Auguste Simon (née Göring). One letter to Herrmann Simon is from his brother Ludwig Simon. A very small number of correspondents include Moritz Eichborn, Rother, Neustädter, Klose, and Jette Pochhammer. Also inserted are two non-contemporaneous notes (page markers) in red ink and a handwritten note relating to the collection (see Acquisition section).</p>
