Abstract:

The collection contains a typescript and a galley proof for "The sign of Jonah" ; letters and telegrams from Charles Scribner's Sons, Inc. and literary agent Elizabeth Nowall pertaining to the novel together with clipped reviews and three preliminary sketches for jacket illustrations.

The collection also contains manuscripts of short stories, articles, and poems; and manuscript notes and a partial draft for "The Prodigal Women." Included is an untitled article about the University of Virginia hospital with many stereotyped references to African Americans and mountain whites. Also of interest is a speech on the problems of the short story writer given at the University of Virginia Colonnade Club.

The collection also contains copies of some Elinor Wylie correspondence and reminiscences of her by Winifred Welles Shearer.

The collection also contains correspondence with publishers about financial arrangements and other matters, and fan letters from readers, chiefly regarding "Prodigal Women." Correspondents include Frank Crowninshield, Junius Fishburne, Arthur Krock, Dave Randall, Charles Wertenbaker and John Hall Wheelock. There is also a letter to Max Perkins from Evelyn Scott Metcalfe reviewing Hale's "Never any more."

Miscellaneous items include a printed copy of "Siva" by her son William Wertenbaker, photographs from a production of a play and a review of "Prodigal Women" by André Maurois.
