Abstract:

Consists of papers of Commins primarily compiled while he was chief editor at Random House.

The author files contain a large selection of Eugene O'Neill material including 60 letters (1920-1948) to Commins; galleys for MORNING BECOMES ELECTRA, AH, WILDERNESS, THE ICEMAN COMETH, DAYS WITHOUT END, and A MOON FOR THE MISBEGOTTEN; miscellaneous correspondence; about 160 letters by Carlotta O'Neill; and photographs of the O'Neills. In addition, there are letters to Commins and his wife, Dorothy, by Gertrude Stein, W.H. Auden, Sherwood Anderson, Budd Schulberg, Albert Einstein, S.N. Behrman, Isak Dinesen, Edgar Snow, Bennett Cerf, Robinson Jeffers, Peter van de Kamp, Margaret Mead, and many others. Typescripts and photographs of various authors are interspersed among the files.

Also present are Commins's typescripts for his lectures, articles, reviews, and short stories, as well as correspondence and papers relating to the publication of THE BASIC WRITINGS OF GEORGE WASHINGTON, SELECTED WRITINGS OF ROBERT LOUIS STEVENSON, and THE MAJOR CAMPAIGN SPEECHES OF ADLAI E. STEVENSON, all edited by Commins.
