Abstract:

Correspondence, financial and legal documents, manuscripts, sound recordings, printed materials, clippings, photographs, and notes document the professional career and private life of book publisher Thayer Hobson.

The collection consists largely of Hobson's correspondence after he stepped down as president of William Morrow and Company in 1958, together with some older personal and financial files. The papers show his professional and personal relations with business associates and friends. The publishing-related materials concern almost all aspects of the business, including acquisitions, editing, advertising, marketing, financial management, foreign publications, and copyright. Also included in the collection are manuscripts of a number of short stories that Hobson wrote in the 1930s.

Significant correspondents include Erle Stanley Gardner and his assistants Jean Bethell, Peggy Downs, Ruth Moore, Hedy Roripaugh, and Helene Seay; Morrow employees Lawrence Hughes, John T. Lawrence, Donald Stevenson, Helen B. King, Francis L. Phillips, John C. Willey, Henriette Gelber, and Lorraine Rockett; and Pocket Books president Freeman Lewis. Among the personal correspondents are Father Joseph Cleary, F. Peavey Heffelfinger, Ruth Moore, P.I. Prentice, and Raymond M. Weaver.
