Series 4, Miscellaneous, 1886-1989
Collection Description & Creator Information
- Scope and Contents
Series 4, Miscellaneous (1922-1981) contains a variety of material relating to Baldwin directly. The crown jewel of this series is the collection of memoranda Baldwin wrote about himself and others that he knew. These memoranda cover topics ranging from the Scopes trial to Baldwin's attitude towards money. These memoranda not only help to clear up confusion about Baldwin's biography; they also offer an unusually direct glimpse into his mind, for he wrote freely about his attitudes and even relatively personal aspects of his life.
Besides Baldwin's musings on himself, this series also contains various pieces of writing about Baldwin by others: an extensive collection of articles, a Harvard senior thesis, an interview conducted by a high school student, and a manuscript chapter of an autobiographical book by Madeleine Doty. Baldwin's FBI files are included here as well.
