Abstract:

The Wolfe family papers, 1890-1958, contain family correspondence, including letters of Thomas Wolfe; manuscripts; legal documents; clippings; scrapbooks; school notebooks and composition books; printed material; notes and reminiscences of family members; personal items that belonged to Thomas Wolfe or members of his family; and other materials. In addition to family correspondence, there are letters from Maxwell E. Perkins, Wolfe's editor at Charles Scribner's Sons; Edward C. Aswell, Wolfe's editor at Harper & Brothers; and Elizabeth Nowell, Wolfe's literary agent and later his first biographer. There is considerable correspondence documenting the work of Wolfe's literary executors and the administrators of the Wolfe estate. Perkins, in addition to being Wolfe's first editor, was the first administrator of the estate; Aswell took over after Perkins's death in 1947. Letters chiefly relate to members of Wolfe's family, most frequently Julia E. Wolfe, Fred Wolfe, and Mabel Wolfe Wheaton. Also included is correspondence with friends, relatives, and admirers of Thomas Wolfe. In addition to correspondence by and about Thomas Wolfe, there is correspondence among family members and other relatives, friends, and acquaintances that documents Wolfe family life in Asheville, 1890-1958. In addition to correspondence, there are also typed and autograph manuscripts of Thomas Wolfe, including the original typed manuscript annotated by Wolfe of his 1938 speech at Purdue University and typed and autograph drafts of several of Wolfe's plays; school and college notebooks; themes; and quiz books. Personal items belonging to Wolfe include his passports, diplomas, copies of transcripts of his college record, and other materials. Printed material includes items by Wolfe that belonged to either the author or members of his family; among these are several copies of his prize-winning college paper The Crisis in Industry and a copy of the limited edition of To Rupert Brooke. Other printed material is from the Wolfe family's collection of articles, essays, and reminiscences. There are also some unpublished materials relating to Thomas Wolfe and his family, including notes and reminiscences by Mabel Wolfe Wheaton and Julia E. Wolfe; transcriptions of recorded interviews with Mabel Wolfe Wheaton made by the Library of Congress; several notebooks of family reminiscences; and Mabel Wolfe Wheaton's collection of clippings about Thomas Wolfe and the Wolfe and Westall families and materials from scrapbooks she compiled that contained clippings, pictures, letters, and telegrams.
