Isa Glenn (1874-1951)
Upon her husband's death in 1921, Glenn embarked on her literary career. She is the author of several novels, including Heat (1926), Little Pitchers (1927), Southern Charm (1928), Transport (1929), A Short History of Julia (1930), East of Eden (1932), Mr. Darlington's Dangerous Age (1933), and The Little Candle's Beam (1935). Glenn moved in the literary circles of New York during the 1920s and 1930s, and associated with Carl Van Vechten, Ellen Glasgow, Joseph Hergesheimer, Isabel Paterson, Frances Patterson, and Emily Clark. An interest in the teachings of G. I. Gurdjieff led her to befriend A. R. Orage.
Glenn died in 1951, and is buried in Arlington National Cemetary with her husband.
Bayard Schindel (1908-?)
This collection arrived at the library in a more or less processed state: all material had been rehoused in acid-free folders, organized, and described in a folder-level inventory. Library staff rehoused the folders in acid-free boxes and created a finding aid based on the folder-level inventory and other information supplied with by the dealer. Folder titles have not been verified against the contents of the folders.
