The Stephen Vincent Benét and Rosemary Benét papers consist of correspondence, manuscripts, printed material, and personal and family papers documenting the life and work of American authors Stephen Vincent Benét and Rosemary Benét. The collection spans the years 1829 to 1962, with the bulk of the collection dating from roughly 1910 to 1943.
Collection material is chiefly in English; with some material in French, German, Polish, and Swedish.
The John Chipman Farrar Papers consist of correspondence, subject files, manuscripts, personal papers, and printed material relating to the personal and professional life of John Chipman Farrar, and to a lesser degree, his wife Margaret Petherbridge Farrar, between 1916 and 1974. The Papers also document the publishing firms Farrar and Rinehart and Farrar, Straus, and Giroux. A number of authors' correspondence and drafts are included in the Papers.
The Sinclair Lewis Papers consist of manuscripts, correspondence, photographs, and personal papers documenting the life and work of novelist and author Sinclair Lewis.
The papers contain correspondence, writings, subject files and personal papers documenting the personal life and writing career of Elizabeth Shepley Sergeant and such subjects as the Taos writers colony, the Indian rights movement, popular psychology, and life in Paris during World War I. Major correspondents include Randolph Bourne, John Collier, Alyse Gregory, Sidney Howard, Haniel Long, Amy Lowell, Mabel Dodge Luhan, and Thornton Wilder.
The Amos Niven Wilder and Wilder Family papers consist of materials once owned and created by the members of author Thornton Wilder’s family: his parents Amos Parker and Isabella, his brother Amos Niven, his sisters Charlotte, Isabel, and Janet, his extended family members, and his contractual agreements with the Freedman Dramatic Agency, and the Wiggin and Dana law firm.
The collection consists of photocopies of letters to and from Thornton Wilder and other members of the Wilder family. The correspondence roughly spans 1910-1975 and the photocopies were likely made between 1990 and 2009. The photocopies were made for members of the Wilder family from materials previously acquired by the Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library and other research libraries.
The collection consists of letters, manuscripts and other publication material, and other papers related to Thornton Wilder. Included are extensive letters to his close friends Amy Wertheimer and William Layton; letters of literary advice to Joe Etta Lee Clarke and Hester Pickman; and materials concerning his publicist, Lee Keedick, and his publisher, Harper and Row.
