Abstract:

Manuscripts, typescripts, correspondence, photographs, programs, brochures, catalogs, posters, flyers, scripts, musical scores, printed materials, artwork, sound recordings, ephemera, memorabilia, and other materials documenting the life and work of Gertrude Stein, her reception by contemporaries, and the influence of her legacy in the first three decades after her death, collected by Addison M. Metcalf between 1945 and 1959. The materials include manuscript and typescript letters from and to Stein; typescripts of several of her works, some corrected in Stein's hand or that of Alice B. Toklas; typescripts and galley proofs of published biographies, critical studies, and memoirs; and typescripts of unpublished dissertations and fictional representations of Stein. The collection also contains programs, posters, photographs, scripts, costume and set designs, and other materials relating to the performance of Stein’s works; music scores set to texts by Stein; catalogs, brochures, and other materials relating to exhibitions of Stein's manuscripts and published works, and to museum and gallery exhibitions of artwork formerly owned by Stein and her siblings, and of artists collected, supported, and championed by her; contemporary and later copy prints of photographs of Stein from 1905 onwards, including many by Carl Van Vechten; complete original copies of almost all periodical issues in which Stein's work appeared during her lifetime; correspondence from people who had known Stein, relating their memories and "impressions” of her; artwork relating to Stein, including several original pieces dating from her lifetime, and several commissioned by Metcalf himself; sound recordings of works by and relating to Stein, performed by herself and others; ephemera and memorabilia, including plates designed by Stein for Van Vechten; and personal and family papers of Addison Metcalf himself.

The Addison M. Metcalf Collection of Gertrude Steiniana consists of manuscripts, typescripts, correspondence, photographs, programs, brochures, catalogs, posters, flyers, scripts, musical scores, printed materials, artwork, sound recordings, ephemera, memorabilia, and other materials collected by Metcalf, primarily between 1945 and 1959, to document the life and work of Gertrude Stein, her reception by contemporaries, and the influence of her legacy in the first three decades after her death.
