    Dear Dr. Dowling,

    A quick note of thanks for your essay, “Forgotten Adlerians,” which I came across when looking for information on Alexander Neuer. I am currently writing a history of a Yiddish language encyclopedia (Di algemeyne entsiklopedye—The Universal Encyclopedia, Berlin, Paris, New York: 1932-1966) and have some correspondence between Adler and Rafael Abramovitch (a leader of the Mensheviks in exile and an editor of the encyclopedia). The encyclopedia has an unsigned entry on Adler (Vol. 1, Paris: 1934) and an entry by Neuer on “Individual Psychology” (Vol. 2, Paris: 1935). The correspondence (which dates from March-Dec 1933 is in German (mostly about the fate of SPD members who either fled or who remained in Germany after Hitler’s rise to power in January) but the entries are in Yiddish. Your article was very helpful for me in identifying Neuer.
