Series II: Writings

Call Number: YCAL MSS 60, Series II

Scope and Contents

Writings is organized in several sections: Books, Articles, Introductions and Reviews, Speeches, and Other Writings. Guthrie's works are arranged chronologically within each section. Under each title can be found manuscripts, correspondence relating to the work, publicity material, dustjackets, and financial records. This is substantially Guthrie's own order for this material. Other relevant information, however, can often be found in the chronological files of Publishers' correspondence. For example, the William Sloane Associates files for 1947-48 contains correspondence bearing on the evaluation, marketing, distribution and sales of The Big Sky.

Scope and Contents

Descriptions such as "my typed version" are taken from notecards that Guthrie inserted at the beginnings of manuscript files.
