Abstract:

The collection contains five manuscripts: "Flowers for the Living," A Tribute to Julian Street; a page from "The Two Vanrevels"; introduction for "A World Worth While"; an essay on Wayman Adams; "A Great Man's career"; and a quotation.

In correspondence concerning his literary work Tarkington discusses the role of the audience in a theatrical performance, adaptation of his play "Monsieur Beaucaire" to the needs of the performers at a charity benefit, collaboration with H.L. Wilson, and difficulty in being objective towards his work.

He also mentions a production of "Katherine" while at Princeton, working on a scenario for Samuel Goldwyn, scheduling publication of stories, proofing and revisions, and the popularity of the Penrod stories.

Correspondence also gives opinions on H.L. Wilson, Lawrence Mazzavovitch, George Ade, Mark Lee Luther, Wayman Adams and John Singer Sargent portraits of him, Richard Harding Davis, Albert B. Paine's biography of Mark Twain, and especially James Whitcomb Riley. He gives opinions on the American-Soviet confrontation and encourages the reading of Tolstoy.

In addition there are letters of recommendation for Charles Fisk Dalton and a Mr. Brown; social notes; letters of thanks and regret, reminiscences including an 1872 family trip to California, comments on his poor health, nervous condition and vision problems; and personal letters to James Whitcomb Riley from Tarkington and other family members giving personal news including accounts of ill health and Maine vacations, and a solicitation of funds for the Indianapolis Orphans Asylum.

The collection also contains a lithograph portrait by Richard Hood; photographs; a postcard of his summer home; a caricature of Alexander Woollcott and a pen-and-ink drawing by Robert Kastors.
