A few years ago I corresponded with a Mrs.
Blanchard of the CUA (not sure if it was the 
archives...). She was very helpful. I had asked if
she was aware of original reproductions of the
Voynich MS (which were not there) or any correspon-
dence between him and Voynich, of which there was
one letter, related to the Pierpont Morgan
She also sent me some published articles about
Hyvernat's life, one of them written on the
occasion of his death, by Th.Petersen. There was
nothing of Voynichological interest in there...
