Archives – Museum of the American Hungarian Foundation
The Foundation maintains extensive and diverse archives of rare books, manuscripts and other documents of historical significance.
Letters by Louis Kossuth, István Széchenyi, and by poet Attila József are treasures of the collection along with many valuable manuscripts. Photos, sound tracks and video cassettes preserve the events of Hungarian cultural and political life in the United States. The Foundation’s Archives document the activities of Hungarian immigrants to America and the social, religious, and cultural institutions they founded.
These archival collections are kept in a hermetically controlled environment, protected from the wear and tear of constant handling and weather conditions. At the present time, the archival material is not cataloged online, but a finding aid is available to help locate the material.
Access to the archives is limited to serious researchers.
