Abstract: George Herbert Ryden (1884-1941), a history professor at the University of Delaware and Delaware State Archivist, was born in Kansas City, Missouri. The George Herbert Ryden collection consists of correspondence files from 1927 to 1941, with the bulk of the letters from 1936 to 1939. It includes carbon copies and some originals of Ryden's outgoing letters as well as letters he received in the conduct of his affairs. However, at least a third to a half of the collection are carbons of others’ correspondence copied to Ryden because of his positions with the AAUP or Swedish-American Historical Foundation and Museum.
