Scott Fitzgerald) and Hemingway's letters to editor Edward O'Brien. In addition, there are manuscripts and proofs of Hemingway's work and biographies of Hemingway. This collection also includes woodcuts by Helmut Ackermann and press releases, posters, and other materials relating to movie adaptations of Hemingway's works.The collection spans the period from 1916 to 1977, with the bulk falling between 1930 and 1965.
