Abstract:

Comprising correspondence, military and school records, writings, legal records, and photographs, the Edwin Turner Bowden, Jr., Papers, 1924-2006, document the military and academic career of Bowden, primarily his service in the U.S. Army Air Force during World War II; his attendance at Harvard, Yale, and Cambridge universities; and his tenure at the University of Texas at Austin.

Comprising correspondence, military and school records, writings, legal records, and photographs, the Edwin Turner Bowden, Jr., Papers, 1924-2006, document Bowden's military and academic career.

The bulk of the collection, correspondence to his parents, 1942-1972, discusses his activities while training and serving as a weather observer in the U. S. Army Air Forces; his education at Harvard, Yale, and Cambridge universities; and his work as a professor at the University of Texas at Austin.

Additional correspondence, 1932-1993, illuminates Bowden’s work with writer Peter De Vries, the publication of Introduction to Prose Style and other writings, and his friendships with fellow servicemen.

The collection also contains military records and reunion newsletters related to his service in the U. S. Army Air Forces as well as school records, diplomas, and college papers.

Publications and printed material include Bowden’s and his father’s stories recalling their service in the First and Second World Wars, 1942-[1945]; copies and reprints of Bowden’s articles and reviews, 1960-1988; and a resolution from the University of Texas at Austin memorializing Bowden upon his death in 2006. Legal records include Bowden's birth certificate, his parents' marriage license, and his father's death certificate. Finally, marriage and divorce papers, 1948, 1969, document the relationship of Bowden and his first wife Ann Haddon, and photographs, [ca. 1924-1950s], 1987, [ca. 1990s], depict Bowden from infancy through adulthood as well as a painting by John Reese Rothgeb.

Also included is a 1976 manuscript by UT English professor Warren Roberts written following the memorial service of Harry Huntt Ransom, chancellor of the University of Texas System.
