Warren Ives Bradley papers

Call Number: MS 924

Scope and Contents

Warren Ives Bradley (1847-1868) wrote books for children under the pen-name Glance Gaylord. This collection consists primarily of manuscripts, some of which appear to be portions of his fifteen published books. There are also notes and content lists for the books, a scrapbook of reviews of several of Bradley's books, two letters from Henry Hoyt to Bradley about publishing, and an agreement between Bradley and the publishers A. Graves and Henry A. Young. Unrelated to Bradley's writing career are a series of household expense lists, and photographs of Bradley and his brother, Oliver Burritt Bradley. There is, finally, a copy of Bradley's obituary, "A Memoir of Warren Ives Bradley."
