SCOPE AND CONTENT NOTE

The Emil H. Rothe Papers cover his time spent at the University of Pennsylvania from September 18, 1929, through June 4, 1930. The collection consists of eighty letters, the majority of which were directly to his father. These dealt primarily with how his schooling was progressing, plans for the future, and various other updates on what was going on in his life as well as inquiries into his parents’ lives. Additionally, enclosed in the papers are news clippings and pictures taken by the Rothes while on vacation with friends. These are personal in nature and offer an insight into what Mr. Rothe’s life was like at this particular period while working and studying physical education at the University of Pennsylvania.
