Abstract:

The Mark Twain collection, collected by Dr. Norman E. Clarke, consists mostly of materials either written or endorsed by Twain, or materials written about him and his works. The collection includes: two brief handwritten notes by Twain, undated, and his wife, Olivia, 1890; postcards; portraits (mostly reproductions); newspaper and magazine clippings (originals and copies); articles about Twain, his works, and house; advertising fliers for Twain books; a Mark Twain calendar, 1910; various items published by the Mark Twain Assn. of America and the Mark Twain Birthplace Memorial Shrine; play bills, 1881, artifacts, including a Mark Twain bust, cigar box, memory game, and scrap book, and a brick from his house; periodicals; Biographical Information (from the Columbia Encyclopedia website, 2004); and other materials. Also included are various lists generated by Dr. Norman E. Clarke, and the Clarke Historical Library staff, of the Mark Twain collection, which were compiled to produce a book about the collection, which was published in 1971. Originally, a large number of books were part of this collection, but they have been separately cataloged.
