History

Acquisition

From Kålund's estate.

Until 2019 the collection of Kålund's letters in Acc. 37 a, Acc. 37 b and Acc. 37 c was catalogued as Acc. 37 and this is how it appears in Agnete Loth's unpublished catalogue. The foliation in pencil is associated with Agnete Loth's cataloging, but it is uncertain whether the division of the collection into five parts is also associated with her.
