	<head>Other Finding Aid</head>
	<p>In 1965, as part of her research for <title render="italic"><part>Hogwarts: A History</part></title>, Bathilda Bagshot created an index of letters between Hogwarts founders based on subject and occasional date information. Each entry contains a brief summary of the letter's context and contents. A copy of this index is available for researchers. It was also used to create <ref href="http://catalog.hogwarts.ac.uk/record=b11713487" show="new" actuate="onrequest"><title render="italic"><part>Correspondence of the Hogwarts Founders</part></title></ref>, see <ptr target="ah876" linktitle="Alternate Form Available" show="replace" actuate="onrequest"/> for further details.</p>
	<head>Scope and Content of the Collection</head>
	<p>The collection is organized into four series:</p>
	<p><emph render="bold">Series 1: Correspondence with Hogwarts Founders</emph> is correspondence with the Hogwarts founders. It includes Slytherin's letters to Godric Gryffindor, Helga Hufflepuff, and Rowena Ravenclaw. The collection consists exclusively of Slytherin's letters to the founders, not their responses.</p>
	<p><emph render="bold">Series 2: Other Correspondence</emph> is Slytherin's correspondence with other witches and wizards. It includes letters received by Slytherin and left at Hogwarts on his departure as well as some letters which were donated later on by correspondents.</p>
	<p><emph render="bold">Series 3: Class Notes</emph> consists of Slytherin's notes for teaching classes on Legilimency, Charms, and Care of Magical Creatures.</p>
	<p><emph render="bold">Series 4: Journals</emph> is made up of four journals kept by Slytherin from around the time of Hogwarts' founding until shortly before his death.</p>
	<p><emph render="bold">Series 5: Spell Books</emph> consists of five spell books kept by Slytherin to record jinxes, dark charms, legilimency, spells for the control of basilisks, and the darkest arts.</p>
