Collection Description & Creator Information
- Scope and Contents
Poem titled, "Seashores in the Sun for the Scott Fitzgeralds."
Arranged alphabetically by author.
- Processing Information
In May 1999, the Princeton University Library was awarded a federal grant under the "Save America's Treasures" program, administered by the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH), to deacidify, repair, and rehouse the F. Scott Fitzgerald Papers. Work was completed in August 2001.
In 2021 and 2022, rehousing and metadata enhancement was completed to prepare materials for digitization, with assistance from August Roberts '25 in March 2022. The finding aid was revised by Amy C. Vo in March 2022 and October 2022.
Access & Use
- Conditions Governing Access
The collection is open for research.
This collection is currently undergoing conservation review and digitization efforts. Some materials may be temporarily unavailable. Please consult staff if you have questions about the status of any material. Due to the fragility of Fitzgerald's original scrapbooks, researchers must use surrogates of these materials. Digital copies of the manuscript of The Great Gatsby, the Trimalchio galleys, This Side of Paradise, and the scrapbooks are available.
