Author Collections

In all of our author-based collections, we try to collect as comprehensively as possible from and about their work; meaning, we acquire materials both by and about our selected authors. In addition to published works, some of the author collections include manuscript materials (archival materials is noted with an asterisk) that may be found in Archon. Published holdings can be located in the library catalog.
