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

Meriden Gravure Company Records

The Records consist of correspondence, office files, estimates, orders, cost recapitulation forms, proofs, and other material documenting the work of the Meriden Gravure Company, a printing company that rose to prominence in the early twentieth century through specialization in high-fidelity image reproduction.

Knowles (John) Papers

The John Knowles Papers document the career and personal life of American author John Knowles between 1954 and 2000. The papers provide insight into Knowles's career as an author and consist of correspondence, writings, notebooks, scrapbooks, printed material, personal papers, audiovisual media, and other papers. The papers also include a portrait (pencil on paper) of Knowles by Don Bachardy. There is some material relating to Knowles's friendships with Truman Capote and Thornton Wilder.

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.

Smith (Harrison) Papers

The Harrison Smith Papers contain writings, correspondence, printed material, and photographs that document the life and work of editor and publisher Harrison Smith, particularly his research on American author Sinclair Lewis, and his editorial work for the Saturday Review of Literature. Series I, Research Files on Sinclair Lewis, includes extensive biographical notes, presumably intended as the source material for a book-length biography of Lewis.

Brodsky (Joseph) Papers

The Joseph Brodsky Papers document the life and work of Russian-born poet, essayist and Nobel Laureate Joseph Brodsky, with a particular emphasis on the time period of his residence in the United States (1972-1996). The papers consist of correspondence, writings, personal papers (including legal, medical and financial records), audiovisual material, teaching material, student papers, newspaper clippings and printed ephemera, spanning the years 1890-2004, with the bulk of the material dating from the period 1972-1996.

Stenzel (Franz R. and Kathryn M.) Collection of Western American Art Addition

The Franz R. and Kathryn M. Stenzel Collection of Western American Art Addition consists of thirty-two works of art, twenty Native American artifacts, and various prints and manuscript items, which decorated the home of Kathryn M. Stenzel until her death in 2006 and which comprise the remainder of the art collection that was donated in 1997.

Speck (William A.) Collection of Goetheana: Theater Ephemera

The William A. Speck Collection of Goetheana: Theater Ephemera consists of eighteenth- through twentieth-century theater playbills, programs, broadsides, posters, and other ephemera documenting performances of plays, operas, magic and puppet shows, burlesques and lectures based on works by Goethe (primarily Faust) and other German and European writers and composers.
