17Title:  Wallace Stevens Oral History Collection, 1975-1985 (bulk 1976-1978)   
 Creator:  Stevens, Wallace, 1879-1955 | Brazeau, Peter. | Knopf, Alfred A., 1892-1984 | MacLeish, Archibald, 1892-1982 | Rodrâiguez Feo, Josâe. | Tate, Allen, 1899-1979 
 Notes:  The oral history tapes and transcriptions, together with the correspondence, that make up this collection were created by Peter A. Brazeau during the course of his research for his oral history biography of Wallace Stevens: Parts of a world: Wallace Stevens remembered (1983). Brazeau, a member of the English Department faculty of St. Joseph College, wrote to and interviewed dozens of Stevens' relatives, friends, neighbors, employees, business colleagues, and literary associates and acquaintances in order to elicit their recollections about the poet. The collection includes tapes (137 tapes), transcriptions (105 transcriptions) and correspondence (363 pieces). Tapes: duplicate cassette tapes have been made from the master tapes (which are in both cassette and reel-to-reel formats). A fairly substantial number of the master tapes are of markedly inferior sound quality, and, while the copies are no worse in quality, it has not been possible to improve or enhance the quality of the copies. The most frequent problem is either very low volume or loud background noise, or a combination of the two. Researchers are cautioned that there is almost certainly some duplication in the tapes for some individuals. Transcriptions: the transcriptions have been xeroxed, and the xeroxes will be used for research purposes. Both the originals and the xeroxes are difficult to read, for Brazeau wrote the transcriptions by hand, often in pencil. Moreover, his transcriptions are not complete but are selective; he omitted segments that were not of interest for his own research. The correspondence consists of originals, most in good condition. In no instance will the master tapes or the originals of the transcriptions be provided for research. The Huntington Library also has the Wallace Stevens papers (WAS 1-4262).
