The archive of the papers of Leo Strauss is held in the Special Collections Research Center at the University of Chicago. Below is the finding aid for that archive. If one plans on visiting Special Collections (JRL 130) at Regenstein Library (1100 E. 57th St., Chicago, IL 60637) to make use of the Leo Strauss Papers, consider first placing a request through the Special Collection Research Center’s online request system. Questions for the librarians at Special Collections may be submitted online.
Funding is available for researchers who wish to consult materials in the Special Collections Research Center through the Platzman Memorial Research Fellowship, which pays up to $3000 for travel and hotel costs.
