Collection Description & Creator Information
- Scope and Contents
The material added to the original donation represents an expansion of the established series. Of note is the greatly expanded series of published and unpublished writings almost exclusively by Kelen and ranging in date from 1950 to 1975. The writings include proposals and manuscripts for unpublished illustrated books, newspapers columns, and short essays and manuscripts for published works including Peace in Their Time and the newspaper column, On Second Thought.
There are 200 portrait sketches added to the 'Portrait Sketches' subseries of the 'Art Work' series and many new syndicated cartoons on the theme of Hitler in Europe added to the 'Cartoons' subseries.
The two new subseries within 'Art Works' include 'Sketchbooks' and 'Children's Book Illustrations.' Kelen carried stenographer's notebooks to the early conferences and meetings that led to the establishment of the United Nations and recorded on the spot drawings of the participants. In the 1960s, Kelen began writing and illustrating children's books for the Unted Nations and drafts and illustrations for these books, both published and unpublished, are also part of the 2007 donation.
This series is arranged by type of material: biographical, correspondence, writings, art works, and miscellaneous.
