Abstract:

The Moe Papers are an immense and rich source of information, not only about Moe and his career, but also as a source of information about twentieth-century philanthropic organizations. As the first Secretary, then Administrator, and finally President of the John Simon Guggenheim Foundation (ca. 1925-1963), Moe made contact with the influential and the aspiring, in the worlds of banking, finance, arts, and the sciences.

This collection is particularly strong in correspondence and information relating to Latin America, much of it generated by the Latin America Fund of the Guggenheim Foundation, and by Moe's own interests in this area of the world as well. This Latin America material is diverse, from a concern with agriculture (see Escuela Agricola Panamericana, 15 boxes) and Peruvian archaeology (see Alfred Kroeber's detailed report) to many folders of correspondence, reports, etc., with artists, writers, and politicians of South and Central America.

Moe served as trustee, officer, and committee member of over thirty private foundations. Within his papers is correspondence about these organizations and the individuals and groups they were attempting to assist. There are yearly reports, grant applications, and various other types of records on these organizations.
