Architectural sketches of house interiors and exteriors

Contains architectural sketches of house interiors and exteriors, many including Bauhaus motifs like circular windows. Many sketches depict differently-sized houses, featuring both exterior and birds-eye-view interior plans. Sketches likely range from 1945 to 1950 and would have been in Israel and Palestine; according to annotations that arrived with the materials, the attached and detached homes were likely designed during the 1947-1950 period for soldier families.

Correspondence

Consists predominantly of letters from the period after Brainin settled in North America. The correspondence includes letters from the famous and the obscure in all parts of the Jewish diaspora, plus Palestine. A majority are written in Hebrew and thus document the renaissance of Hebrew as a modern language. Many of the letters were accompanied by manuscripts submitted to Brainin as editor of various Hebrew publications (manuscripts located in Gr. I). Of great interest in this group is the collection of letters from Chava Shapiro to Brainin during their long relationship (Box t). Correspondence is arranged alphabetically in the Hebrew alphabet (Boxes a-t) and then in the Roman alphabet for all other languages (Boxes s-x). The last box in the Group (Box y) contains Brainin family correspondence.
