Collection Overview

Collection Description & Creator Information


The collection consists of letters to Maurice from 117 19th- and early 20th-century American writers. Maurice was an editor of the Bookman from 1899 to 1916, a member of the Players Club, a book reviewer and columnist, and a writer about writers. Many of the letters are in response to Maurice's 1922 request for the most interesting letter an author had received from the general public. A smaller section of the collection deals with the Players Club, and a 1929 series on how authors came to write certain of their books. Included are letters of Booth Tarkington and Samuel Hopkins Adams.
