Rieff, Philip, 1922-2006
Extent: 2.6 linear feet (7 boxes)
Philip Rieff (1922-2006) was an American sociologist, cultural critic and professor at the University of Pennsylvania from 1961 to 1992. He is best known for his critiques of Freud and Freud's influence on society and morality in Western cultures. The collection is almost entirely composed of letters and postcards written to Rieff alongside a small number he authored himself. The subjects of the correspondences are largely personal, ranging from social letters with friends to thank-you letters from prior students. There is a large body of correspondence from Evelyn Joll (1925-2001), an art dealer and scholar who specialized in the work of the British painter J. M. W. Turner. There are also a small number of documents from academic and professional bodies, such as the letter awarding Rieff a Guggenheim fellowship in 1970.
