Abstract:

Thomas Merton papers include manuscripts, correspondence, clippings and photographs. Manuscripts are primarily prose by Merton about philosophy, Catholic theology and practice, contemporary social and political issues, and literature. The correspondence includes letters to Jim Forest and correspondence with Dorothy Day, Pope Paul VI, Tom Cornell, John Heidbrink, Shonzo Hamai (Mayor of Hiroshima), and A.J. Muste. Photographs cover Merton's childhood, his family and acquaintances, monastic life, and Gethsemani Abbey. Clippings contain material by and about Merton.

James H. Forest papers contain manuscripts, correspondence, clippings, and a videocassette. Manuscripts are almost exclusively typescripts on the life and thought of Thomas Merton. Correspondence, primarily written after 1976, includes Forest's contacts with his publisher, Brother Patrick Hart, Naomi Burton Stone, Edward Rice, Michael Mott, James Laughlin, Henri Nouwen, J.F. Brouwer, W.H. "Ping" Ferry, Anne H. McCormick, Bob Giroux, Fr. John Eudes Bamberger, Robert Lax, John Howard Griffith, and Gerry Twomey. The remainder of the collection consists of clippings by or about James Forest and a videocassette of a lecture about Thomas Merton given at Boston College in 1995.
