Bert C. Chambers letters with Rudolph Ruzicka, 1931-1976 Rauner Manuscript MS-1363

Introduction to the Collection

The Bert C. Chambers letters with Rudolph Ruzicka contain approximately 80 pieces of correspondence from the 1930’s to the 1970’s. The letters, all but two of which are to Chambers from Ruzicka, chronicle Ruzicka’s side of an increasingly intimate 40 year friendship between the two graphic designers and their families. Ruzicka discusses printing and design jobs of interest to both men as well as his summer vacations at Hartland, Greensboro, and Quechee, Vermont and his daughter’s, Tatiana and Veronica, lives and work. Also included are 10 prints by Ruzicka and a few letters from Tatiana Ruzicka to Chambers.
