Abstract:

Fredericks' personal papers, including writings, lectures, incoming correspondence, photographs, and ephemera. (For additional materials see 900230C.).

Series 1, Writing: Juvenilia (1933-1940), including prose, poetry, and some music and drawing; early poetry, prose, and drama (1939-1961), including drafts of The Wedding and a final version of An Interruption of laughter. Later writing includes notes, drafts, texts, and reviews of Fredericks' plays On Circe's island and A Summer ghost; other unfinished plays (1961-1988); and prose dating from 1973-1986. Also, various collections of writing submitted to publishers; published materials; ca. 8,000 holograph pages in notebooks (1945-1987). Also includes a set of his Complete poems, 1940-1988, a collection of ca. 2,000 poems, compiled by Fredericks.

Series II, Teaching: Lecture notes for all classes taught at Bennington College (1961-1988), including introductory classes, Greek literature, "religious experience" and Japanese literature, Dante, and others. Cassette recordings of every class given by Fredericks, 1981-1988. Carbon copies of Fredericks' evaluations of students and their work (1961-1988), arranged by year and class, students' evaluations of him, and Bennington College's catalogs.

Series III, Ephemera: Programs of plays, exhibits, concerts, and recitals attended, 1950-1988, including from Fredericks' years of travel in Europe (1950-1952) and Japan (1966) and living in Rome (1983). Also cancelled checks (1944-1988).

Series IV, Photographs, film, and sound recordings: Includes 233 family photographs (ca. 1850-1964) documented by Fredericks, 1,791 Minox prints (1964-1983), other photographs (1916-1983), Leica prints of Fredericks in Europe taken by James Merrill (1950-1951), a large-format portrait photograph of Fredericks (1935), and ca. 25 photographs and several sound recordings documenting productions of Fredericks' plays (On Circe's island, Summer ghost, and Idiot king). Also includes 121 photographic postcards taken by Carl Van Vechten (1947-1950) and sent to Fredericks and his partner Milton Saul; most are embossed "Photography by Carl Van Vechten," and most are unpublished. The wide range of his portrait subjects (artists, actors, authors, dancers, musicians, composers) is represented, including Judith Anderson, Josephine Baker, Marlon Brando, Leonard Bernstein, Truman Capote, Jean Cocteau, Billie Holiday, Nora Kaye, Norman Mailer, Eugene O'Neill, and Gertrude Stein.

Series V, Letters to Claude Fredericks (1944-1988): Significant correspondents include family members, many poets and writers published by the Banyan Press, and after 1961, Fredericks' colleagues at Bennington College (e.g. Stephen Sandy and Nicholas Delbanco), and many of his students. Others include May Sarton, Evelyn Hofer, Roger Kimball, Anaïs Nin, and Gil Orlovitz, among many others. Letters from James Merrill have been moved to Claude Fredericks journal and letters, accn. no. 900230C.
