Abstract:

Correspondence, both personal and business, writings, and memorabilia.

The Correspondence-subject files contain biographical material, family correspondence, and general personal and business letters. The correspondence is almost exclusively incoming, however there are a few photocopies of McGinley's outgoing letters scattered throughout various files. While the collection contains letters from a number of literary figures (Richard Armour, Cass Canfield, Peter De Vries, Richard Eberhart, Jean and Walter Kerr, Marianne Moore, Lewis Mumford, Anne Sexton, A.M. Sullivan, Louis Untermeyer, John Updike, E.B. and Katharine White, Thornton Wilder), clergy (Daniel Berrigan, Richard Cushing, John Haynes Holmes, Sister Mary Madeleva, Joseph Ritter, Francis Spellman, Francis Sweeney), composers and lyricists (Elizabeth Gould, Oscar Hammerstein, Gladys Rich, Richard Rodgers, Orvis Ross), entertainers (Katharine Cornell, Hume Cronyn, Irene Dunne, Tom Ewell, Helen Hayes, Peter Lind Hayes, Mary Healy, Groucho Marx, Walter Slezak, Jane Wyatt), and politicians (Stanley M. Isaacs, Jacob Javits, Eugene McCarthy, Nelson A. Rockefeller, Sargent Shriver, Stewart Udall, Robert F. Wagner), there are few long runs of personal correspondence of significant depth or duration.

The Correspondence reflects both McGinley's business relationship with agent Curtis Brown Inc. and the extraordinary range of publications to which she was a frequent contributor (America, The American Scholar, The Critic, Good Housekeeping, Ladies' Home Journal, The New Yorker, The Reader's Digest, The Saturday Evening Post, The Sign). A teacher and author of children's books as well as a poet, essayist, and lyricist, McGinley, in a career which spanned more than four decades, maintained business relationships with a variety of publishers over a number of years (Collier Books, Duell, Sloan, & Pearce, Inc., J.B. Lippincott, Macmillan, G. Schirmer, Viking Press, Franklin Watts, Inc.).

Widely acclaimed for her wit and common-sense approach to the rigors and joys of family life in America, McGinley received an extensive assortment of fan mail (2 linear ft.) from children, educators, fellow poets, librarians, and the hundreds of housewives whose lives she champioined from the earliest beginnings of the women's movement in the 1960s through the mid-1970s.

A significant portion of the correspondence centers around the various honors and awards which were bestowed on McGinley. A recipient of the Pulitzer Prize for poetry in 1961, the Irish American humorist also received a number of honorary Doctor of Letters degrees (Boston College, Dartmouth College, Marquette University, St. John's University, Smith College, Wheaton College, Wilson College) as well as the Catholic Book Club's Campion Award (1967), the Catholic Institute of the Press Award (1960), and the Laetare Medal, conferred by the University of Notre Dame in 1964. She also appeared on the cover of Time the week of June 18, 1965.

In 1968, asked by New York Governor Nelson A. Rockefeller to serve on a committee to review the State's abortion law, McGinley, a Catholic, agreed to participate in the controversial hearing and to file a report. The collection includes correspondence, a transcript of the hearing, the report of the committee and related newspaper clippings.

Writings include any combination for a given title of work sheets, manuscripts, production records, and published versions for McGinley's books, essays, interviews, lyrics, poetry, reviews, scripts, speeches and stories. In addition to her poetry appearances in a wide variety of popular magazines, McGinley also produced a number of verses which were used commercially, including advertisements for Book Week, Calvert Distillers Corporation, Coty, The New Yorker, and Seagram-Distillers Corporation. Also among the writings are a diary (1949-1951) and an assortment of juvenilia.

Memorabilia consists primarily of financial, legal, and printed materials, photographs and scrapbooks. Included among the financial materials are bank check records and numerous royalty statements. Legal materials include a chronological arrangement of contracts (1928-1974) and an assortment of copyright renewals and transfers. Printed materials consist of articles about McGinley as well as publicity for and reviews of her many books. A series of scrapbooks contain a variety of materials but also include printed material by and about McGinley.
