Consists of copies (Xeroxes, photostats, typed transcripts) of letters by Ernest Hemingway, from about 1910 to his death in 1961, to approximately 250 different people, including family, friends, publishers, sportsmen, and writers. There are also occasional copies of replies to Hemingway and some original correspondence of Carlos Baker with the correspondents and others relating to the Hemingway letters. Baker compiled the copies from various sources. Many of the original letters are in Princeton University Library manuscript collections, while others are in different libraries or personal collections around the country. Some of the copies have notations indicating the source of the original letters; however, the location of many of the originals is unknown. Many of the letters have been published in Baker's Ernest Hemingway: Selected Letters, 1917-1961 (1981).
Arranged alphabetically by correspondent.
