Robert Fitzgerald Papers
The collection is particularly rich for its correspondence with poets, editors, translators, publishers, and literary scholars and critics during the middle part of the 20th century. In addition to the correspondence, there are printed versions and drafts for various kinds of writings: articles and essays, criticism, edited works, lectures and speeches, obituaries and tributes, open letters, plays, poetry, reviews, school work, short stories, and translations. The writings include corrected drafts and galley proofs for the Illiad and a comprehensive run of drafts for the Aeneid, along with setting copies and page proofs. Other materials include artwork, family papers, medical and military records, notebooks, photographs, printed ephemera, school records, and teaching and course materials.
