Abstract:

Manuscripts of poems, short stories, collections of verse, and other writings, correspondence, and miscellany trace the writing career and personal life of Ogden Nash, 1882-1969 (bulk 1928-1969). The collection is organized into four series which are generally arranged alphabetically by author or title.

The Works series contains drafts of over 350 of Nash's poems and published collections, many of them holographs, as well as typed and copied versions with edits, printer's marks and notes. In addition, an untitled and unpublished novel, lyrics, scripts, and a few essays and speeches are scattered through the series, which is arranged alphabetically.

The Letters series consists almost entirely of 577 letters from Nash to his wife, Frances Leonard Nash. Additionally, there are letters to publishers, friends, and in-laws. The Recipient series is composed of letters and telegrams from friends, fans, editors, and publishers to Nash. These include Larry Adler, Spiro Agnew, Nicolas Bentley, Gelett Burgess, Curtis Brown, Ltd., Walt Disney, Corey Ford, Eugene McCarthy, Groucho Marx, Marianne Moore, Christopher Morley, the New Yorker, Charles G. Norris, S.J. Perelman, J.B. Priestley, John Pudney, John Updike, E.B. White, and P.G. Wodehouse.

The Miscellaneous series contans a wide variety of material ranging from honorary degrees awarded to Nash, a journal of publishing informationfor all of Nash's published poems, certificates of membership in various societies, wedding license and program, and biographical information and obituary notices for family members. A series of letters from Edmund Strudwick, Nash's father, spans 1882-1924. Also included in this series are galley proofs for E.B. White's collection of verses, "The Fox of Peapack and Other Poems," letters from Frances L. Nash to her mother, and minutes from the Nassau and Suffolk County Deviled Ham and Lake Ronkonkoma Club meetings.
