Edition/Format:   Archival material : Manuscript : English
Database:WorldCat
Summary:
The collection consists chiefly of correspondence with publishers, lecture organizer Harold R. Peat, inc., and academics.

Correspondence, 1953-1955, with the Peat agency discusses itineraries, monetary arrangements, criticism, advice, lecture format and stress. Some contracts, itinaries and instruction sheets are included.

Correspondence with agents and publishers traces the publication history of his books. Very brief, routine letters from academics generally request permission to reprint selections in anthologies and college texts.

Of interest in the correspondence are a 1952 letter resigning from the American Civil Liberties Union and three letters re potential libel over the character "Elsa" in "Great Days."

The collection also contains a Columbia University Law School Class Book, 1896, with a biographical note and photograph of his half brother James Madison; royalty statements; clippings; obituaries; a memoranda notebook; miscellaneous printed material and two articles by Dos Passos "The Truth About Visual Training," "Two Eighteenth-Century Careers"and "Thomas Jefferson Looks At the Modern World."  Read more...
