Abstract:

96 letters, chiefly from Willa Cather to Louise Guerber Burroughs (with Burroughs's occasional penciled notes in margin), 1925-1946, as well as letters from Burroughs and 10 others.

Correspondence preceded by "Vignette of Louise Guerber Burroughs, 1900-1985, by John C. Guerber" ([2] p.). Includes 69 A.L.s or A.N.s (including 4 postcards) and 6 T.L.s from Cather to Burroughs, most with envelopes; 5 letters from Burroughs (penciled A.L.s to Bryson Burroughs; holograph draft of a letter to Edith Lewis; T.L.s to the postmaster in Lamy, N.M.; T.L. to Cather; copy of T.L. to CBS) and holograph draft, unfinished, of her memories of Cather; and 16 letters (9 T.L.s, 7 A.L.s) from 10 others: to Burroughs from Malcolm Wyer, Kathleen Campbell, Sarah Bloom, Edith Lewis, George D. Crothers and Morton Zabel; to Cather from Van Wyck Brooks, Bruce Rogers, and her Nebraska friends Anna Pavelka (Cather's model for the character of ʹAntonia) and Lydia Lambrecht. Includes also an undated, unsigned typescript, with Cather's ms. corrections and note, of poem "A Lament" (published later as "Poor Marty"), dated by Burroughs "Xmas 1926," and 2 unsigned woodblock Christmas cards designed by Bryson Burroughs between 1928 and 1933. In her letters to Burroughs, Cather asks for research assistance; writes about her current reading (including Anatole France, Turgenev, Walter Scott); reflects on her work (including Death comes for the archbishop, Shadows on the rock and The song of the lark); and refers to Yehudi Menuhin, D.H. and Frieda von Richthofen Lawrence, the Lindberghs, Mabel Dodge Luhan, Edna St. Vincent Millay, the MacDowell Colony and the death of Isabelle McClung Hambourg. There are also enclosures such as literary articles, an inscribed photograph from Cather, and a list of books and articles about Kit Carson compiled by Burroughs at Cather's request for her research in writing Death comes for the archbishop. Burroughs's exchanges with Edith Lewis regard Cather's religious affiliation and Lewis's memoir of Cather.
