Collection Description & Creator Information

Scope and Contents

Contains over 40 small notebooks, dating from 1932 to 1963. The contents of some have been crossed out with pencil marks. Many of the later ones are more like daily calendars of engagements rather than commentary. Placed at the end are a copy of The Arts (number two, 1946), containing Hinks's article "Mannerism", and a small amount of miscellaneous printed material.
