Abstract:

The papers include include correspondence, writings, research notes, subject files, and other items related to Richard S. Kennedy's life-long interest in novelist Thomas Wolfe. There is correspondence beginning in 1949, that includes letters from Elizabeth Nowell, Wolfe's agent and biographer; correspondence with Edward Aswell, Wolfe's editor and executor of his estate; a 1950 letter from Malcolm Cowley; a 1959 letter from Robert Penn Warren; and letters between Kennedy and others who knew the Wolfe. Some of those letter include personal accounts of the author. There are also letters between Kennedy and other Wolfe scholars, collectors, and researchers, and materials documenting Kennedy's involvement with the Thomas Wolfe Society and with author and collector Aldo P. Magi. Also included are letters and clippings related to Kennedy's role in "Wolfegate," a debate in the early 1980s about the role of the editor in Wolfe's posthumously published works. Writings include manuscript and typescript drafts of Kennedy's articles and books on Wolfe and photocopies of manuscript and archival materials. Kennedy's handwritten research notes appear on hundreds of index cards that are arranged by subject. There are also a few subject files that Kennedy maintained.
