Three postcards and sixteen letters, 1946-1949, from Hitchcock to John N. Summerson and Dorothy Stroud, who were both on the staff of Sir John Soane's Museum in London. The letters record Hitchcock's impressions of Europe in the summer of 1946 while he was traveling in England to research his book, Early Victorian Architecture in Britain, and document the progress of his research and record his impressions of buildings, geography, food, and hotels. Later letters, when Hitchcock has returned to the United States discuss his own move from Wesleyan University to Smith College.
