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

Bergery (Bettina) Papers

The Bettina Bergery Papers consist of 122 volumes of diaries, 1940-1980; a small amount of other autobiographical writings and writings about fashion design; correspondence with family and friends; scrapbooks, clippings, and other printed material relating to her interests in fashion, art, and politics; photographs and photograph albums relating to the Shaw Jones family, Bergery's friendships, travel in French Equatorial Africa, and diplomatic travels with Gaston Bergery; biographical material, legal documents, and other personal papers; and a small amount of drawings

Kahn (Michael) Papers

Correspondence, business and production files, scripts, notes, photographs, printed material, and audiovisual materials documenting Michael Kahn's career as a theater and opera director, theater administrator, and teacher of theatrical arts. Kahn's administrative and directorial work at the American Shakespeare Theatre, the McCarter Theatre, the Shakespeare Theatre, and the Juilliard School are particularly well documented.

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.

Betty Zane Grosso Collection of Zane and Dolly Grey Papers

The collection documents the life and work of the American writer Zane Grey and his wife Dolly Grey, and to some extent the lives of their children. The papers chiefly consist of correspondence between Zane and Dolly Grey from the time they met until his death, circa 1900-1939. Their letters document Zane Grey's frequent travels throughout the American West and in the South Pacific, his career as a writer, their marriage, and the growth of their family.

Sandoval (Judith Hancock de) papers and photographs

The collection consists of material created and accumulated by Judith Hancock de Sandoval in the course of her activities as a photographer, and primarily documents her project, Historic Ranches of Wyoming, from 1984 to 1990. Material includes correspondence, notes, research files, printed material, and maps as well as photographic prints, negatives, contact sheets, slides, and printer's plates for the production of Historic Ranches of Wyoming (Casper, Wyo. : Nicolaysen Art Museum, 1986).

Ford (Paul Leicester) Papers

The collection consists of correspondence, writings, and personal papers of the American historian and author Paul Leicester Ford. The correspondence is largely professional and documents Ford's work as an editor, historian, bibliographer, novelist and playwright. Ford's correspondents include John Kendrick Bangs, Samuel L. Clemens, Edward Everett Hale, Thomas Wentworth Higginson, Rudyard Kipling, and S. Weir Mitchell; earlier letters written to others by James Fennimore Cooper and Jared Sparks are also present.
