Abstract:

Chiefly correspondence, manuscripts, diaries, journals, and business papers of William Dean Howells; together with smaller collections of correspondence of his wife Elinor Mead Howells, and their children Winifred, Mildred, and John Mead Howells. Includes 15 boxes of letters to William Dean Howells from about 600 correspondents; also contains correspondence from publishers and editors, including Henry Mills Alden of Harper's Monthly, Richard Watson Gilder of Century Magazine, and James R. Osgood. A large group of letters from Lawrence Barrett concerns theatrical productions of Howells's plays. Some correspondence relates to Howells's editorship of The Atlantic Monthly. Also includes significant groups of letters from literary friends and acquaintances, such as Samuel L. Clemens, John Hay, Henry James, James Russell Lowell, and E.C. Stedman. The bulk of the letters by Howells are to family members, especially his wife, his father William Cooper Howells, his sisters Aurelia and Annie, and his brother Joseph. Literary manuscripts are chiefly poems, plays, and essays. Diaries and journals cover Howells's early life in Ohio, his period as consul in Venice, and travels to various places from 1864 to 1918. Business papers include contracts for publications and papers relating to real estate investments. Also contains scrapbooks, photographs, memorabilia, and clippings of articles by and about Howells. A bound volume contains letters and tributes to Howells on his eightieth birthday.

Letters to Mildred Howells are chiefly concerned with the preparation and publication of her Life in Letters of W.D. Howells (1928). This series includes drawings, diaries, and clippings.
