Abstract:

Correspondence, manuscripts, typescripts, notes, photographs, and printed materials relating to his research, writing, and teaching. The correspondence relates chiefly to research for his books, articles, essays, and lectures as well as reactions, scholarly and popular, to his works. There are single letters for authors including Maxwell Anderson, Lawrence Durrell, Randall Jarrell, and Upton Sinclair; several letters each from John Masefield, James Thurber, and E.B. White; 21 letters from Clifton Fadiman; correspondence with Columbia University faculty and students; with classical scholars in the United States, Great Britain, and Europe; with publishers including Alfred A. Knopf and Oxford University Press; with his literary agent Curtis Brown, Ltd.; with HORIZON MAGAZINE, as chairman of its Advisory Editorial Board; with the Book-of-the-Month Club, as a Judge; with Encyclopedia Britannica Sound Seminars; correspondence concerning his very popular syndicated radio talks; and letters from his readers, ranging from members of women's literary clubs to headmasters of British secondary schools.

Although there are almost none of Highet's book manuscripts, there are hundreds of pages of notes and bibliographies for all his major works as well as manuscripts and typescripts for his articles, essays, and lectures. Extensive notes exist for THE CLASSICAL TRADITION, JUVENAL, THE SATIRIST, and THE SPEECHES IN VERGIL'S AENEID. Of particular interest are the approximately 500 photographs Highet took himself to illustrate POETS IN A LANDSCAPE. Background materials for his teaching, research, and many of his shorter pieces are classified in several subject files: Greek Authors, Greek Themes, Latin Authors, Latin Themes, and General Subject File. These files contain manuscripts, notes, some correspondence, and much printed material. Among the printed materials are 115 dissertations, offprints, and articles on Juvenal, chiefly 19th and 20th century European dissertations.
