Abstract:

Letters and other materials relating to prominent women writers, including Doris Betts, Josephine Jacobsen, Maxine Kumin, Sally Fitzgerald, May Sarton, Anne Tyler, and Cecil Dawkins. There are also letters from Anne Tyler's mother, Phyllis Mahon Tyler. Letters from Doris Betts cover a wide variety of subjects. They include critical comment and advice on Evans's literary efforts, as well as discussion about day-to-day obligations of professional writers and news of mutual friends. Also included are drafts of articles about Betts, draft material from Evans's book about Betts, and correspondence with others about Betts; interviews Evans conducted with Betts; and correspondence of Betts with others, including Penelope Presley, a high school student to whom Betts wrote about creative writing. Letters from Josephine Jacobsen and her husband, Eric Jacobsen, relate mostly to personal matters. Letters from Anne Tyler discuss both personal matters and topics relating to Evans's book about Tyler's work. Letters from Phyllis Mahon Tyler also primarily relate to Evans's Tyler book. Letters from Maxine Kumin, Sally Fitzgerald, and Cecil Dawkins deal mostly with aspects of each author's career and professional development, but there is also information about their everyday activities. May Sarton letters relate primarily to Evans's book on Sarton's work. Also included are manuscripts, clippings, and photographs relating to Evans's correspondents.
