ID: 03/154

Primary Creator: Whittemore, Reed (1919-)

Extent: 1.0 Boxes

Arrangement: Arranged files

Scope and Contents of the Materials

Whittemore, Professor of English, was also the founder and editor of the nationally respected litary review, The Carleton Miscellany.  The papers in this record group are those of Whittemore's activities as editor.  The bulk of the papers is correspondence with authors (both established and erstwhile), other editors, reviewers, and critics.  This correspondence sheds an often fascinating light on the literary scene of the 1950s, as Whittemore and others discuss the latest in literary gossip and candidly critique (and occasionally psychoanalyse) their peers.  Moreover, the letters give a good glimpse into the trials and tribulations of an editor.  The correspondence is arranged chronologically, but here is a card index by name of correspondent.  Also part of the record group are some manuscripts (unpublished), budget data, clippings, advertisements, and photos.
