Collection Overview

Collection Description & Creator Information


The collection reflects the work of Putnam during the period he lived with his family in France, which was the subject of his published reminiscence Paris Was Our Mistress. Although the collection documents many of Putnam's activities during this time, it emphasizes his work as editor of The New Review, an "international notebook for the arts," of which five issues were published between 1930 and 1932 by Brewer, Warren and Putnam, Inc. Correspondents include Ezra Pound (who served as associate editor for four issues), Richard Aldington, William Aspenwall Bradley, and Ford Madox Ford, as well as over 100 other literary and artistic figures.
