The Peter and Tom Wolf Papers is a small collection that contains materials that encompass both the private and public life of the Reuther and Wolf family from the 1930s to 2007. May and Walter Reuther were Peter and Tom's aunt and uncle. Most of the collection materials are photographs which came from their mother, Eleanor Wolf.


Peter and Tom Wolf are extended family members of the Reuther Family. May Reuther and Leo Wolf, Peter and Tom's dad, were siblings. Their mom, Eleanor Wolf, taught sociology and anthropology for Wayne State University.


Folders are listed by their location within each box. The papers are arranged chronologically, followed by photographs which were kept in their numbered order.


The Peter and Tom Wolf Papers were deposited at the Walter P. Reuther Library in 2016.
