The Vachel Lindsay collection contains original correspondence and manuscripts by early twentieth-century American poet Vachel Lindsay. The collection features letters from Lindsay to poet Sara Teasdale, dating from 1913 to 1931, documenting their early courtship and ongoing friendship. Writings appear to have been sent to Teasdale as enclosures to the letters. There are also letters to Teasdale from Lindsay's widow, Elizabeth Connor Lindsay, following his death in late 1931.
Pen-and-ink floral motif drawing with holograph note, "Wallpaper for Sara [Teasdale] from Vachel," with the annotation, "made Nov. 13, 1931, S T," presumably in Teasdale's hand.
Drawn on the verso of the personal letterhead of Mrs. S. T. [Sara Teasdale] Filsinger of New York.
