L. C. Tiffany's papers are scattered so there are a number of libraries and collectors who hold materials.

I attached a partial list of documents and drawings related to Tiffany held by the Rakow Research Library. I encourage you to browse the library's online catalog to search for additional materials. (there are two databases, "Rakow Library Catalog" and "Article Index" at ). For example, I typed "Tiffany Episcopal" and found a variety of secondary sources for specific churches -- they may lead you to letters and documents in church records.) 

The list also includes some clues to other institutions that may have relevant papers (culled from bibliograpies and online).

The Charles Hosmer Morse Museum of American, Winter Park, FL is a rich source of Tiffany materials. From the website: "The Museum's Tiffany collection is additionally well supported by unique historical artifacts and archival material that shed light on Louis Comfort Tiffany, the man, his art, and his times. These materials include Tiffany's personal memorabilia, letters, designs, plans, photographs, early experiments, business documents, ephemera, and architectural fragments from Laurelton Hall and Tiffany's various homes in New York City." 

The Rakow Research Library, CMoG has a variety of subject- or format-related bibliographies for Tiffany. Please continue to ask questions if you would like additional information and/or lists.

You are welcome to come to Corning and use the resources of the Rakow Research Library. We encourage you to call ahead to let us know when you plan to arrive/visit and remind us of your area of interest. While an appointment is not requirement for use of the library, it will help us to be better prepared to meet your research needs and to have preliminary materials ready upon your arrival. Please contact me (contact information, below).

Our library participates in Interlibrary Loan (ILL). Please contact your local library. The Rakow Research Library is a member of the Online Computer Library Center (OCLC); your library can contact us through OCLC or they may mail an Interlibrary Loan form to us. You may request up to five items at a time. We send photocopies of articles and microfiche copies of our books (if they have been microfilmed) through Interlibrary Loan for four weeks use.

Much of our original Tiffany material has not yet been digitized or filmed so it would not be eligible for ILL.
