New Finding Aids

Finding aids are documents that describe and enable access to archival and manuscript collections. The Yale Finding Aid Database provides access to all finding aids across the Yale University Library. Below is a list of recently published and significantly revised Beinecke Library finding aids.   

January 15, 2013

Pound (Ezra) Papers

The Ezra Pound Papers document the literary career and political interests of Ezra Pound. Major correspondents include Richard Aldington, George Antheil, William Bird, T. S. Eliot, Ernest Hemingway, James Laughlin, Wyndham Lewis, Marianne Moore, Odon Por, and Henry Swabey. The collection contains manuscripts of many of Pound's works, including the Cantos, Guide to Kulchur, and scripts of Pound's wartime radio broadcasts.

Hartley (Marsden) Collection

The collection consists of writings, correspondence, photographs, and other materials documenting the personal and professional affairs of Modernist-era painter Marsden Hartley. Writings contain notes and drafts, autograph and typescript, for numerous writings, chiefly essays. Correspondence is spread out over the many groupings in the collection and features large files of outgoing letters to Norma Berger, Hartley's niece, Carl Sprinchorn, and Adelaide S. Kuntz, as well as incoming letters from artists, writers, cultural figures, and institutions.

Byron (Robert) Papers

The Robert Byron Papers consist of correspondence, writings, photographs, drawings, and other material that document his work as a writer and art critic. The Papers provide evidence of Byron's travels and writing career as well as his work as a propagandist during World War II.

Phoenix Theatre Records

The Phoenix Theatre Records consist of production files, administrative and financial records, correspondence, photographs, music, audiovisual material, production programs and posters, and other materials that document the organization, administration, financial activities, and productions of the Phoenix Theatre from its creation in 1953 to the closing of the company in 1982.

Brady (Mathew B.) and Handy (Levin Corbin) Photographic Studios Collection

Photographs, papers, and artifacts created or collected by Mathew B. Brady, Levin Corbin handy, their studios, and their family, 1843-1957. The collection includes images created by Brady during the American Civil War and documents the continual use of these images into the early twentieth century by Handy and his studio. The collection reflects the operations of the Brady and Handy studios in Washington, D.C., from the middle of the nineteenth century through the early twentieth century.
