Abstract:

The collection contains the mss. of short stories, plays and poetry by Taylor. Notebooks and proofs for some of his work are included. The papers also contain Taylor's professional and personal correspondence, 1948-1977.

The former contains letters from Katherine S. White and Robert Angell of the New Yorker, Robert Giroux of Harcourt, Brace, and Co., and David McDowell of Random House and McDowell, Obolensky, and are chiefly concerned with the editing of Taylor's work for publication.

A few contain insights into internal difficulties at Harcourt, Brace. Taylor's personal correspondence contains letters from readers, University of Virginia colleagues, Tennessee friends, and fellow authors. Their content is largely personal, although some discuss the work of Taylor or themselves.

The collection also contains a typescript of "A sad heart in the supermarket" and galleys of "The animal family" by Randall Jarrell; a shooting script of "A spinster's tale;" "Reelfoot's night riders," an article about a vigilante group in Tennessee that mentions Taylor's family; "Gentleman in a dustcoat," and an article on John Crowe Ransom by Allen Tate.

The collection also contains copies of Hika, the Kenyon College Literary Magazine from 1939-40 when Taylor was on the staff; magazine articles on Taylor and Katherine Anne Porter; and photographs of Taylor and Porter.

Of interest are copies of self-portraits or other sketches of the following authors as collected by Burt Britton: Archie Randolph Ammons, Edward Albee, Jonathan Baumbach, Saul Bellow, James Dickey, Janet Flanner, John Fowles, Charles William Goyen, Elizabeth Hardwick, John Clendennin Burne Hawkes, Lillian Hellman, Richard Howard, Stanley Jasspon Kunitz, Alison Lurie, Bernard Malamud, William Maxwell, James Ingram Merrill, Howard Moss, Reynolds Price.

Other sketches of authors include those of: Isaac Bashevis Singer, Alan Sillitoe, Jean Stafford, Robert Anthony Stone, William Styron, Robert Penn Warren, Eudora Welty, and Tennessee Williams.

Among the correspondents are Jonathan Baumbach, Barry Bingham, Charles Overman Bissell, John Malcolm Brinnin, John Casey, John Clagget Danforth, Irvin Ehrenprois, Paul Engle, Robert Giroux, Dumas Malone, William Harwood Peden, James Lal Penick, Allen Tate, John Anderson Thompson, Frank Campbell Waldrop, and Ed Yoder.
