Abstract:

This portion of the C. Frederick Kittle Collection of Doyleana, amassed by Dr. Kittle, includes mostly correspondence, twenty-five photographs, artwork and a few miscellaneous items relating to Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and his family.

There are 140 letters, notes and cards written by Arthur Conan Doyle (including a few written by secretary and signed by him), and six letters to him, including 3 from Leslie Curnow, writer for Light, a journal of psychic research. There are 56 miscellaneous letters, some written by Doyle family members, others associated with Doyle, and the rest are those retained by Dr. Kittle relating to his collecting of Doyle materials. The group of photographs consists of portraits and snapshots of Doyle, plus several associated with his various interests and activities, and a portrait of actor William Gillette. The art includes work of his grandfather John, his father Charles and his uncle Richard, 3 illustrations for published stories, and a pencil drawing by Horace Vernet. Miscellany includes some notes for a lecture, a few pieces of ephemera, obituaries and memorial for Doyle's daughter Jean, who died in 1997, and photocopies of correspondence held by the British Museum.
