Her travel journals, correspondence, guest books, and even her academic notebooks, create a more complete and intimate portrait of this retail dynamo. One of the highlights of this part of the collection is the correspondence between Beatrice Fox Auerbach and Eleanor Roosevelt. When this part of the collection was donated, photocopies of Roosevelt’s letters to Beatrice Fox Auerbach had already been made. The donors also procured photocopies of Beatrice Fox Auerbach’s letters to Eleanor Roosevelt that are not part of this collection. Those letters not at the Connecticut Historical Society are most likely housed at the Franklin D. Roosevelt Presidential Library and Museum in Hyde Park, New York, which has at least three folders of correspondence from Beatrice Fox Auerbach to Eleanor Roosevelt. The two sets of photocopies (those copied from originals in this collection and those from the Roosevelt Library) have been interspersed chronologically to provide context to the correspondence. The original letters from Eleanor Roosevelt in this collection have been separated from the photocopies and are restricted for preservation reasons. If the originals are necessary for your research, please speak with the Research Center Staff about how to obtain permission to use them.
