Abstract:

Consists mainly of Schulberg's writings, with some correspondence, documents, scrapbooks, and miscellaneous material. Included are the manuscripts for the novels WHAT MAKES SAMMY RUN? (1941), THE HARDER THEY FALL (1947), THE DISENCHANTED (1950), WATERFRONT (1955), AND SANCTUARY (1969). In addition, there are manuscripts of several screenplays, including A FACE IN THE CROWD (1957), WIND ACROSS THE EVERGLADES (1958), and ON THE WATERFRONT (1954); the play THE DISENCHANTED (1958); and the musical WHAT MAKES SAMMY RUN? (1964), the last three based on Schulberg's novels. The collection also contains Schulberg's edited manuscript FROM THE ASHES: VOICES OF WATTS (1967), a project of the Watts Writers' Workshop which he helped establish in the aftermath of the 1965 Los Angeles Watts riots. Among his non-fiction works are the manuscript of "Machiavelli on 8th Avenue," the biography of the boxing promoter, Mike Jacobs; articles, essays, and a thesis, "Jefferson Democracy," written as an undergraduate at Dartmouth College; and an introduction to Nathanael West's THE DAY OF THE LOCUST (1965).

The bulk of the correspondence consists of letters by Schulberg's literary agent, Brandt and Brandt, and congratulatory letters on the publication of THE DISENCHANTED and THE HARDER THEY FALL. There is also miscellaneous correspondence from Random House, Schulberg's publisher, and the Sidney Cox Fund at Dartmouth, legal contracts and agreements, scrapbooks for WHAT MAKES SAMMY RUN? and WATERFRONT, and miscellaneous material.

Additional accessions include 51 letter, cards, and telegrams sent by Schulberg to Arthur and Rosemary Mizener dating from 1947 to 1964 and a letter to Allen Hard of the "Gazette" of New Hope, Pa.
