Abstract:

The Fred Gipson Papers, 1920-1973, include manuscripts, drafts, correspondence, contracts, financial and legal documents, and photographs that document his life as one of the most prolific writers of the American Southwest. The creative works consist of manuscripts (often including multiple annotated and corrected drafts) of short stories, novels, screenplays, speeches, and newspapers articles. While short story drafts and printed versions dominate the works series, also present are numerous story ideas or outlines, called "briefs" by Gipson. Gipson's most famous novel Old Yeller is not found in this collection; however, several revised drafts of Savage Sam, both novel and screen adaptation, are present.

Correspondence with friends, literary agents and publishers, and fan mail comprise half the collection. This correspondence reflects Gipson's literary achievements and the influence his books had on young readers, whose letters dominate the fan mail subseries. The correspondence series also illuminates the problems and struggles Gipson endured in his personal life and writing career. Significant correspondents include Walter Brennan, Bernard Brister, Maurice Crain, Margaret Cousins, J. Frank Dobie, Samuel Goldwyn, John Henry Faulk, Lyndon B. Johnson, Zack Miller, Fess Parker, Cactus Pryor, General Jesus Jaime Quiñones, Joe Austell Small, H.N. Swanson, Evan Thomas, Walter Prescott Webb, Annie Laurie Williams, and Chill Wills.

Additional series include printed material by and about Gipson and his works, personal papers, and financial and legal documents. The Gipson papers represent aspects of his work and life from his childhood to his death in 1973. Beyond the study of Gipson and his writings, this collection provides insight into the process of writing and publishing popular western and children's literature in the last half of the twentieth century.
