Ilse Schütz (10 February 1902 - 7 June 1990)

Born in Vienna where she also studied art history and history. In 1926 she married Alfred Schütz. After his death, she supervised the countless translations of his work and arranged editing work. Because of this, worldwide reception of the Schütz school of thought is inseparably linked to her name. Her estate contains correspondence with people connected with the New School and the broader social and academic network of the Schütz family from emigration circles, as well as correspondence with several generations of the “phenomenological movement” in philosophy and sociology since the 1960s. It also contains received manuscripts and publishing correspondence as well as materials on the reception of Schütz’s work. Both originals and copies of the estate are available. An index is also available.
