Kaufman, Emma R.

Three typescript letters regarding the papers of Caroline MacDonald, the work of Emma Ratz Kaufman in Japan, and the possible donation of Kaufman's papers to the Lady Aberdeen Library at the University of Waterloo.

The first letter, from Kaufman to Long, makes reference to Kaufman's work with the YWCA in Japan including Canada House, Toki Hamano and the move of Caroline MacDonald's papers from New York to the Victoria College Archives at the University of Toronto.

The second and third letters are both from Long and written on the same day, consisting of a response to Kaufman and a letter to Doris Lewis about her correspondence with Kaufman. In the letter to Kaufman, Long praises Kaufman's work in Japan, expresses belief that MacDonald's papers will be better used in Canada than in the United States, and pitches the University of Waterloo as a home for Kaufman's paper. Of note is Long's rationale for the donation of all of Kaufman's papers so that future generations can "get the "feel" of the human being with whom they are establishing a contact - across the intervening years" and postscript inclusion of an anecdote about the unfortunate destruction of the papers of Cairine Wilson by her family, following her death. In Long's letter to Lewis, presumably written after her letter to Kaufman, Long provides context about her pitch to Kaufman, including references to the establishment of Canada House and her local ties to Waterloo. The letter ends with a brief mention about being sad about her "dear friends Floring and Wyle" and their [health and estate].
