1Title:  John T. McIntyre draft of Ferment, 1936   
 Creator:  McIntyre, John T. (John Thomas), 1871-1951 
 Notes:  This collection contains John T. McIntyre's draft of his Ferment, which was written in 1936 and published in 1937. The draft is largely typewritten, with some handwritten pages inserted between typed pages. These handwritten pages were clearly additions and the numbering of the additional pages are designated with 1/2 or occasionally even 1/4. Nearly every page is heavily annotated and corrected, probably by McIntyre. The novel includes 40 chapters. At the end of the final folder are pages numbered 67 to 75, which are radically different from pages 67 to 75 contained in order within the larger manuscript. It is unclear if this set of pages was rejected or part of a previous draft.

2Title:  Don Stacy correspondence with Vilém Flusser, 1966-1976 (bulk: 1973-1976)   
 Creator:  Flusser, Vilém, 1920-1991 | Stacy, Don, 1925- 
 Notes:  The correspondence between Don Stacy and Vilém Flusser in this collection was collected by Don Stacy and takes place primarily between 1973 and 1976. The letters from Don Stacy are either handwritten draft letters to Flusser or reprographic copies of the sent letters, while the letters from Flusser are originals. Stacy makes the first connection between the two men by writing to Flusser in response to Flusser's article, "Bottles," published in Main currents of modern thought in 1972. This first letter from Stacy to Flusser, dated February 12, 1973, sets off ten years of correspondence between the two men, though only the years between 1973 and 1976 are represented in this collection. The two men discuss art and philosophy, taking pleasure in sharing ideas and theories and debating opposing positions, and also address issues surrounding their friendship. Notable with regard to the development of their friendship is an exchange in 1974, when Stacy writes to Flusser to express his displeasure at their first in-person encounter; Flusser had asked Stacy to set up contacts for him in New York City so that he could give lectures (letters in this collection show Stacy's efforts to secure lecture dates for Flusser), and Stacy reveals in his letter dated March 11, 1974, that he felt used by Flusser as a result of Flusser's time in New York City. The two men work through this disagreement, with Stacy appealing to Flusser on an emotional level and Flusser maintaining an intellectual stance, and go on to share further ideas regarding art and philosophy and develop their friendship over the years to come. Of the 34 letters between Stacy and Flusser in this collection there are 7 reprographic copies and the rest are originals; i.e. original letters from Flusser, or original drafts of letters to Flusser from Stacy. The sent versions of the draft letters from Stacy are most likely in the collection of the Flusser Archives at the Universität der Künste Berlin in Germany. The letters housed at the Kislak Center are arranged chronologically. Note that Flusser erroneously refers to Stacy as "Dan" instead of "Don" throughout most of the letters. The collection also contains a few published and unpublished writings by Vilém Flusser, as well as a published article by Don Stacy. Also contained in the collection are letters that Don Stacy received from New York University, Fairleigh Dickinson University, and the International Library of Systems Theory and Philosophy in his efforts to secure lecture dates for Flusser in New York City.

3Title:  Charles Mulford Robinson papers, 1831-1932 (bulk: 1880-1924)   
 Creator:  Robinson, Charles Mulford, 1869-1917 | Robinson, Eliza Ten Eyck Pruyn, 1870-1956 
 Notes:  The collection contains an assortment of documents collected and saved by American city planner, professor, and author Charles Mulford Robinson and his wife Eliza Ten Eyck Pruyn Robinson between 1880 and 1934. The first series, Civic advising, documents, to a limited degree, Robinson's career as a city advisor. This material comprises several reports suggesting municipal improvements which Robinson delivered to various communities in his capacity as a civic advisor, as well as newspaper articles and related articles. Cites include Freeport, Illinois; Greensboro, North Carolina; Hannibal, Missouri; and Syracuse, New York. This series also documents, through letters and newspaper clippings, the controversy over George Eastman's plan to construct a series of tenements in Rochester, which was opposed by Robinson and other members of the community. The second and third series contain correspondence addressed to Robinson and his wife. Robinson's correspondence, which dates between 1889 and 1917, reveals acquaintanceship with a number of big names in the Progressive and City Beautiful movements, including author and economist Richard T. Ely, and labor leader Samuel Gompers. The bulk of the material documents clubs which Robinson was invited to visit. The correspondence of Eliza Robinson, Charles Mulford Robinson's wife, is largely personal preceding Robinson's death in 1917, and includes notes from her parents, Augustus and Catilina Pruyn, her husband, and one from John C. Olmsted. Following Robinson's death, however, the bulk of her correspondence discusses her donation of her late husband's professional library to Harvard University in 1921. Both sets of correspondence are arranged chronologically. The fourth series, Newspaper clippings, contains a great number of newspaper articles about Robinson from 1898 to 1926, including those about Robinson's visits and civic advice to Denver and Honolulu, his death in 1917, and the dedication of several memorials to him in the ensuing years. Researchers interested in published accounts about Robinson should be aware that many of the scrapbooks (located in Series VII) also contain newspapers clippings that were arranged by Robinson, himself. Like many 19th century gentlemen, Robinson wrote and published several works. Series V. Poetry and prose, written by Charles M. Robinson contains a number of poems, hymns, and prose pieces written by Robinson, as well as several poetry collections and two plays Robinson co-authored. Many of the items in this series are handwritten, and it is unclear how many of them were published. However, there are a few items that were printed and were clearly published, although the publication is frequently unknown. Although it appears that Robinson's professional library was donated to Harvard in 1921, this collection contains a small number of books and pamphlets owned by him and his wife. The items are arranged alphabetically by title of work. Robinson also compiled a number of scrapbooks, one of which documents his wedding and includes lists of telegrams received, newspaper notices, and the invitation. The final series, Family and personal papers, includes some family papers, but the bulk the material is a largely miscellaneous group of Robinson's personal papers. The family material includes forms excusing Robinson's father from service in the Civil War and an address given by his grandfather to the Hartford County (Connecticut) Agricultural Society in 1830. There are also a number of photographs, primarily featuring buildings, individuals, and one family portrait of Robinson, his wife, and several others. The miscellaneous personal records include collected autographs and books plates, Robinson's personal stamp, a few financial records, his 1891 passport, and records from a club headed by Robinson. Highlights include his advising reports to several communities and a number of his creative works. The collection overall provides a broad view into the life of Charles Mulford Robinson and his wife, and attests to their character. It will be of interest to historians of the late 19th and early 20th centuries in the United States and urban planning, and biographers interested in one of America's first native world-recognized urban planners.

4Title:  "Mortimer Myself, An Autobiography," 1866   
 Creator:  Olmstead, J. M. (James Munson), 1794-1870 
 Notes:  "Mortimer Myself, An Autobiography," written in 1866, consists of the daily happenings in one man's life. The narrator's direct identity remains unclear throughout the text. The attributed author of the book is stated as James Munson Olmstead, but the only name mentioned in the text is "Mortimer." This work consists of four hundred eighty-eight pages of handwritten manuscript that primarily contain descriptions of Mortimer's daily encounters with various people, notably women, and how he feels about them. These encounters are combined with an underlying Christian theme. Some place names mentioned in the text include Elmsgrove Plantation, Riverside, Tunbridge, Harworth, [Longyunak] Bay, Ashford, and Sunny Place. It is unclear if these locations are fictional or if they are intended to be set in the United States or in Britain. While there are a few words crossed out, the majority of corrections appears to have been made by glueing strips of paper with revised text onto the page. Similarly, there are occasionally additional pages added to the volume.

5Title:  Brandt & Brandt collection of authors' typescripts, circa 1952   
 Creator:  Brandt & Brandt | Coxe, George Harmon, 1901-1984 | Hahn, Emily, 1905-1997 | Lawrence, Josephine, 1897?-1978 
 Notes:  The three typescripts in this collection are by authors under contract at the literary agency Brandt & Brandt: George Harmon Coxe, an American writer of crime fiction (The crimson clue); Emily Hahn, an American journalist and author (Love conquers nothing: a glandular history of civilization); and Josephine Lawrence, an American novelist, journalist, and children's author (Song in the night). The typescripts are arranged in three files, arranged alphabetically by book title. There is light handwritten editing present on the typescripts and likely these were close to the final versions that were sent to the printer for publication. All pages are present.

6Title:  Caspar René Gregory manuscript of Canon and text of the new testament, 1907   
 Creator:  Gregory, Caspar René, 1846-1917 
 Notes:  This collection contains Caspar René Gregory's handwritten manuscript for Canon and text of the new testament, which was published in 1907. The manuscript itself is handwritten in tiny neat handwriting and on occasion (particularly, however, on the title, dedication, and contents pages) contains notes to the printer/publisher with instructions on how Gregory would like to see the text displayed. The text is corrected throughout, all in one hand, probably Gregory's, and there are a few pages with fold-out additions hinged on the right side of the paper. The manuscript is 196 pages, including an index and a list of scripture passages.

 Notes:  This collection contains an annotated manuscript of George Aaron Barton's Studies in new testament Christianity, which was published by the University of Pennsylvania Press in 1928. These manuscripts are heavily annotated by Barton and also include typed additions that are cut out and pasted onto the original manuscript. There is also an index of authors included for Studies in new testament Christianity and an undated photograph of Barton.

8Title:  John Muirhead Macfarlane writings, 1922-1929   
 Creator:  Macfarlane, John Muirhead, 1855-1943 
 Notes:  This collection includes several manuscripts and typescripts for writings by John Muirhead Macfarlane, dating from 1923 to 1929, after his retirement in 1920. The typescripts include Fishes the source of petroleum from 1922; a report from the Spec. American Petroleum Institute from 1925; "The origin and amount of petroleum supplies: a study, a criticism, and a review of criticisms" from 1929; and "The evolution and distribution of Asclepiadaceae" which is undated.

9Title:  Gilbert Seldes papers, 1920-1957   
 Creator:  Seldes, Gilbert, 1893-1970 
 Notes:  Divided into four series, this collection primarily contains research material Seldes gathered for his writings including his book The public arts. Also included in the collection is correspondence, drafts and printed copies of articles and reviews Seldes wrote in the 1940s and 1950s. Seldes filed his research material using a numbered category system for which no key to said system was included within the collection. At times, the category name was included on the file folder, but more often then not, it was not. It should also be noted that despite being marked with one category number, material may have been found in a different category folder. The material was left within the category in which it was found.

11Title:  Joseph Blotner collection on Thorne Smith, 1926-1955   
 Creator:  Blotner, Joseph, 1923-2012 | Smith, Thorne, 1892-1934 
 Notes:  The collection is organized into two series. The first is comprised of correspondences between Joseph Blotner, a then-Ph.D. candidate at the University of Pennsylvania conducting research for his dissertation entitled Thorne Smith: A study in popular fiction, and various associates of Smith. Blotner corresponded with a range of figures from editors of publishing houses and advertising agencies for which Smith worked to Ogden Nash and H. L. Mencken. Some of these letters appear to have resulted from an announcement in the New York Times in which Blotner requested information about Thorne Smith; other letters appear to be responding to specific enquiries from Blotner. The resulting letters provide first-hand accounts of the letter-writer's impressions of and experiences with Thorne Smith. Of note is a biography of Thorne Smith by Roland Young which was published in 1934. The second series consists of typescripts and manuscripts of Smith's novels, including Topper, The night life of the gods, and Rain in the doorway.

The letters were mainly written from Big Sur, California and discuss subjects ranging from art and photographs to other authors whom Miller recommends Tambimuttu to publish. The material in this collection is arranged in alphabetical order.

13Title:  Lyman W. Riley typescripts of Aristotle texts and commentaries to 1700 in the University of Pennsylvania Library, 1961, 1987   
 Creator:  Riley, Lyman W. 
 Notes:  This collection includes the typescript and supplement (including corrections) of Lyman W. Riley's bibliography of Aristotle works, Aristotle texts and commentaries to 1700 in the University of Pennsylvania Library. The original typescript of this work, which is present in this collection, dates to 1961--however, there are some pages missing. The supplement can be found in two folders with corrections and related correspondence between Riley and a Kate Reed that date to January 6, 1987 and January 12, 1987. In addition to the original typescript and following corrections are undated xeroxes, corrected pages, and copies of Aristotle card catalog cards from the University of Pennsylvania Van Pelt Library. It is unclear why certain pages are missing from the original typescript--although it is possible that they were removed in order that the supplemental pages with corrections could be inserted. There are no complete versions of the work contained in this collection.

14Title:  Vladimir B. Grinioff papers on Tale of a whistling shrimp, 1956-1957   
 Creator:  Grinioff, Vladimir B., 1911-2001 
 Notes:  This collection contains the original manuscripts, a revised manuscript for the copy editor, galley proofs, and drafts of cover art for Vladimir B. Grinioff's Tale of a whistling shrimp. The material dates between 1956 and 1957. According to Grinioff's letter at the time of gifting the collection, he enjoyed working with his editor Mrs. Beulah Harris, stating that "a good editor is an author's best friend." Grinioff describes the evolution of this book: "After some arguing back and forth the manuscript was altered and retyped for the copy editor ... At this point, the author thinks he is all done and the manuscript is perfect. Then he sees the galleys and faints ... the paragraphs seem too long or too short. The transitions are terrible. The punctuation all wrong. The eye does not slide along the lines, but bounces along like a car with a flat tire -- more revisions." Grinioff's original manuscript is annotated largely in pencil, in what appears to be two separate hands (one of which is Beulah Harris's) with typed notes occasionally suggesting edits. The revised manuscript for the copy editor is heavily corrected--although these corrections appear to be more technical in nature, relating largely to spelling and punctuation. The galley proofs (two versions) are again corrected. The cover art drafts consist of the cover text and design adhered to translucent paper. These manuscripts provide insight into the stages of creation of this book.

15Title:  A. Edward Newton draft and proofs of Bibliography and pseudo-bibliography, 1936   
 Creator:  Newton, A. Edward (Alfred Edward), 1864-1940 
 Notes:  This collection contains a corrected typescript draft and two printer's proofs for A. Edward Newton's 1936 book, Bibliography and pseudo-bibliography. In the printer's proof, Bibliography and pseudo-bibliography is described as an "engaging account of the personal pleasures of book collecting [which] is delightful and informative reading in its own right. It also serves as a stimulus to wider adventure in the many exciting fields of literature it explores." It appears that this book, published by the University of Pennsylvania Press in 1936, may be a compilation of lectures given by Newton as part of the A.S.W. Rosenbach Fellowship in Bibliography. The typescript draft is heavily annotated and corrected, both with additions or changes to the text, and also with a proofreader's suggestions for punctuation, spelling, and other grammatical improvements. There are two sets of printer's proofs which are also annotated and corrected. The first is dated August, 1936, and the second, which appears to be only a selection of pages, is dated September, 1936, and includes an affectionate handwritten note to Newton from Kit (Christopher) Morley (1890-1957), a Philadelphia journalist.

16Title:  Kermit Vanderbilt typescripts and page proofs of American literature and the academy: the roots, growth and maturity of a profession, 1986   
 Creator:  Vanderbilt, Kermit. 
 Notes:  This collection includes the typescripts and page proofs for Kermit Vanderbilt's American literature and the academy: the roots, growth and maturity of a profession, published in 1989 by the University of Pennsylvania Press. Vanderbilt's book is divided into three "books" or sections: Roots, Growth, and Maturity. According to the description of the book (found in box 1, folder 4), this volume is "the biography of an academic profession whose members have ... 'helped created for Americans a sense of our literary history and, within that growing literary tradition, our awareness of a private and national selfhood.'" Researchers will find references to authors, literary editors (including H.L. Mencken, Robert Spiller, and Van Wyck Brooks), and professors of English (including Arthur Hobson Quinn). In his introduction, Vanderbilt states that the contents "point to a story that embraces our early nationalistic pride, Anglophilia and Anglophobia, literary-critical wars, the rise of literary histories, the origin of university departments, curriculum development, textbooks and anthologies, graduate study, cooperative scholarship, professional societies and politics, and more." The typescripts are annotated.

17Title:  Joseph Martin du Colombier manuscript of "Napoleon Bonaparte, Martyr of St. Helena," 1840   
 Creator:  Du Colombier, Joseph Martin, 1761-1846 
 Notes:  This play describes the end of Napoleon Bonaparte's life, during his exile on the island of St. Helena, starting in 1815. He was held by the British in the Longwood House, a building selected for its elevation and lack of vegetation, making it an ideal location to secure. Napoleon's health declined, possibly due to damp conditions in Longwood House (although the cause of his death is debated: stomach cancer, ulcers, or arsenic poisoning) and he died in 1821 at the age of fifty-one. In 1840, the same year the play was written, Louis Philippe I obtained permission from the British to return Napoleon's remains to France so that a state funeral could be held. This collection contains two manuscript drafts of Joseph Martin du Colombier's play, "Napoleon Bonaparte, Martyr of St. Helena," written in 1840. The play does not appear to have been published in English or in French. The first volume is a draft of the play written in English, containing a prologue, five acts, and an epilogue. It also contains several newspaper clippings (one describing Napoleon's last will and testament and one describing Napoleon's tomb) affixed to the inside front and back covers respectively as well as three additional articles originally laid in describing the "Arrival of the remains of Napoleon at Cherbourg," "Character of Napoleon," and "Wellington and Napoleon Compared." There is what appears to be a hand-drawn and colored illustration "Prometheus Victim to Jupiter's Rage" affixed to the title page. The second volume is written in French but only contains the five acts, without the prologue and epilogue. A reproduction portrait of Napoleon is affixed to the inside front cover of this volume.

18Title:  Clifford Manshardt writings, 1972-1977   
 Creator:  Manshardt, Clifford, 1897-1989 
 Notes:  This collection contains typescript drafts for two of his unpublished writings: "Transitions: the Shipmans of Bombay" and "When religion divides: the story of India and Pakistan." The draft for "Transitions: the Shipmans of Bombay, 1839-1947" consists of two bound volumes (volumes 1 and 2) and describes the public and private life of a fictitious English family living in Bombay. In the preface, Manshardt states that this manuscript "was not intended to be a book. It is rather an attempt to transfer to paper my own interest in Bombay during the 19th Century, and to recount a period in which I was both an observer and a participant, during a residence of almost twenty years, during the stirring years of the Indian National Struggle." Manshardt describes this work as "a selective socio-political narrative, with Bombay as its primary locale." The draft for "When religion divides: the story of India and Pakistan" is 372 pages and includes edits, presumably by Manshardt. In the preface, Manshardt makes it clear that this work is a follow-up to his 1936 The Hindu-Muslim Problem in India. Manshardt states that "When religion divides," "tells the story of how the trend toward Hindu-Muslim accommodation, which was in evidence to almost the end of the 19th Century, developed into the political power struggle of the 20th Century, resulting in the partitioning of India and the emergence of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan" and "explains the principal reasons for the conflict between the two nations; the events leading to the War of 1971; the aftermath of the war in India and Pakistan; the State of Emergency in India; the 1977 elections in both countries; the post-election disturbances and the military take-over in Pakistan; and the current moves toward rapprochement."

19Title:  David L. Vanderwerken research collection on Chaim Potok, 1962-2013   
 Creator:  Vanderwerken, David L. 
 Notes:  This collection includes material related to David Vanderwerken's planned critical biography of author Chaim Potok. It contains correspondence concerning the proposal for the book, submitted as an application for funding from Vanderwerken's employer, Texas Christian University; research on the critical literature surrounding Potok's literary career, life, and art; research on the critical literature surrounding individual works by Potok; a Vanderwerken interview with Potok, including Potok's edits; and copies of Potok's novels and nonfiction works, with Vanderwerken's annotations. The majority of the collection's arrangement preserves Vanderwerken's original order. The general research is organized at the subseries level by the type of secondary literature under review (articles and book chapters, theses and dissertations, online biographies). The research pertaining to the critical literature around specific works is organized alphabetically by title. The Vanderwerken interview is arranged chronologically. The copies of Potok works are organized alphabetically by title.

20Title:  William Wister Haines papers, 1932-1967   
 Creator:  Haines, William Wister, 1908-1989 
 Notes:  This collection includes material related to William Wister Haines's literary work. It contains a detailed series of drafts for ten of his novels, published and unpublished, as well as signed first editions of most of the published work, arranged alphabetically by title. The novel drafts, arranged chronologically, are extensive, carefully delineated by version and date, and often accompanied by revealing (and sometimes harshly critical) notes from editors. Some of the novel drafts also include research material. In addition, the collection contains a large number of versions of Haines's most successful play, Command decision -- though these are not as carefully delineated as the novel drafts -- as well as press clippings, photographs, and costume lists for the performances, all of which are arranged chronologically. His unproduced plays are represented only by single drafts. The collection also contains drafts of Haines's published and unpublished short stories, poems, and magazine articles, though with the exception of several published in The Saturday evening post, these are generally represented only by a single draft. These drafts are arranged alphabetically by title.
