Series II: Writings

Call Number: GEN MSS 302, Series II

Scope and Contents

Contents: Miscellaneous, arranged alphabetically by the first word of the entry assigned; Manuscripts and typescripts of Dorothy Richardson's works; Short stories and articles, arranged by title; Novels, arranged by title; Manuscripts and typescripts of works about Dorothy Richardson, arranged alphabetically by author. The first group, 'Miscellaneous', contains items belonging to Dorothy Richardson such as notebooks, notecards, and an excerpt from a novel by H. G. Wells, which do not fit neatly into any specific category. In describing Dorothy Richardson's shorter works, an attempt has been made to distinguish among short stories, literary essays, and book reviews: the purely fictional works are merely listed with no comment; essays usually have a brief description of their subject matter, except in such instances where the subject is fairly clear from the title; and book reviews list the author and title of the book(s) being reviewed. In instances where it is known, publication information is given. In some cases it was clear from clippings in Series III that a particular article was published in the Saturday Review, but it was impossible to ascertain the volume, number, or date of publication.
