Corresondence with Princeton Classmates, 1939-1950
Collection Description & Creator Information
The collection consists of four small groups of correspondence between Halliburton and others after the death of his famous son Richard in 1939: 1) with Wilfred Crowell (1939-40) about Richard's fatal trip on his Chinese junk, the Sea Dragon, and subsequent business matters related to its disappearance; 2) with Burton Holmes (1940-41) concerning Holmes's interest in developing an illustrated lecture on Richard's life; 3) with Arthur Stringer (1945-48) regarding his use of Richard's research material for a biography of Rupert Brooke, later published as Red Wine of Youth (1948); and with several of Richard's old friends and former college roommates (Princeton Class of 1921), particularly John H. Leh and J. P. Sieberling.
