Abstract:

The archives of "America" and of its parent Jesuit community in New York provide a detailed history of this prominent Jesuit publication from a time some years before the magazine's first appearance in 1909 through 1987. The interest and significance of the collection go well beyond literature alone. The collection is central to the record of 20th century American Catholic history, and there are, in addition, extensive materials relating to the Spanish Civil War and to the affairs of the persecuted Catholic Church in Mexico. The correspondence files contain letters from virtually every 20th century American Catholic writer of note as well as many English and European ones, including Graham Greene, Louise Imogen Guiney, Jacques Maritain, Katharine Tynan, and Sigrid Undset. There are also letters and manuscripts from such writers as T. S. Eliot and Ezra Pound. Moreover, the "America" archives document how the magazine was edited, directed, and published, as well as how it attained its important place among American periodicals
