Abstract:

Letters, postcards and 1 telegram covering the years from the Brewsters' courtship and marriage through the death of Achsah Brewster in 1945 and Earl Brewster in 1957.

All are A.L.s, except 3 T.L.s and 1 T.L. Over 300 letters are from the Brewsters to each other, and about 1250 are from them to their daughter, Harwood, during her school years in England and her adult life in France and the U.S. In addition, there are 63 letters (1931-1957) from Earl Brewster to Lucille Czernin Beckett Frost, with several of her annotations; 1 letter from Achsah Brewster to her sisters; 1 letter to Earl Brewster from his brother; and 4 letters to or from their acquaintances in Italy and India. Numerous references are made to such friends and correspondents as D.H. Lawrence and Frieda von Richthofen Lawrence, Willa Cather and Edith Lewis, Vachel Lindsay, Frederick R. Shaler, Rudolf Ruzicka, Axel Munthe, Jawaharlal Nehru and members of the Nehru family, Mahatma Gandhi, Gertrude Emerson Sen and her husband, Basiwar Sen, Dhan Gopal Mukerji, Caroline A.F. Rhys Davids, and many others. Accompanied by a chronology of the Brewsters' lives, a photocopy reproduction of a typescript memoir by Harwood Barlow Brewster Picard (59 p.), a photocopy of a typescript transcript of a story about Earl Brewster by Francis Watson, broadcast in 1956 by the BBC ([2] p.), and 4 photographs.
