After Maria Scheler's demise in 1969, they were reproduced  by the German Research Society (Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft, Bad Godesberg) in 1970 exclusively for their new editor Manfred S. Frings, Chicago. It contains all manuscripts, some 3000 fragments, 67 notebooks, transcriptions, and the book titles of Max Scheler's home library. The German Collected Edition,  fifteen volumes (see this Web site), is solely based on the Archives' material. This Edition was completed in 1997.
The Albuquerque Archives are a photostat (with numerous editorial annotations by the editors) collated with the Max Scheler Archives in Munich.
They remained in Frings' possession until 2004 when he donated them to The University of New Mexico, U.S.A. [an error occurred while processing this directive]
