Series I of the Gilbert papers comprise the correspondence, diaries, notebooks, and other materials of Stuart Gilbert. The series covers the years 1900 to 1969, with the majority dating between 1940 and 1969. The correspondence and other papers are essentially professional in character; correspondents include Sylvia Beach, Peter Du Sautoy, T. S. Eliot, Richard Ellmann, Desmond Harmsworth, Ben Huebsch, Patricia Hutchins, André Malraux, Roger Martin du Gard, and Harriet Weaver. Gilbert's diaries, which span the years 1929 to 1967, and his numerous notebooks give insight into his assistance to and collaboration with James Joyce. His translation work and original writing is only sketchily represented.
Series II, the correspondence, notebooks, and other materials of Moune Gilbert, reflects the social interests and daily activities of Stuart Gilbert's wife. As in the first series, little dates from before 1940. Correspondents inlcude James and Christiane Emmons, Milton and Laura Runyon, Narcissa S. King, and Anie Parent. The notebooks contain excerpts from French authors and abstracts of books read; a late interview contains Moune's description of her husband's relationship with James Joyce.
Series III includes correspondence of James Joyce, along with a draft chapter of Finnegans Wake, some verse, photographs, and a collection of critical material on his novels. About seventy postcards and letters Joyce sent the Gilberts are included, as are others from Nora, George, and Lucia Joyce.
