Collection Description & Creator Information
The collectino consists primarily of author files related to the "Literary Landmarks of Princeton" exhibition curated by Alfred L. Bush in 1967, which include his correspondence with and about "Princeton" authors, information about the authors, and some photographs of the authors or their homes in Princeton. The correspondence often provides unusual anecdotes about the authors, or their reaction to the exhibition and catalogue. There is also a small series of files for authors not included in the exhibition, and miscellaneous files that contain general notes and information associated with the production of the exhibition and the printed exhibition catalogue.
