The Library's catalog, Orbis, provides access to collections material across the Yale University Library. Below is a list of recently cataloged Beinecke Library acquisitions that are now available in the catalog.
Collection consists of material relating chiefly to the Pou Street Elementary School, as well as the Pou Street school Parent Teachers Association, in Columbus, Georgia. Materials include clippings, financial records, photographs, P.T.A. bylaws, and programs. Photographs show school delegates at local events and state and national meetings, including the 31st Annual Convention of the National Congress of Colored Parents and Teachers at Fisk University in Nashville, Tennessee. Additional printed materials include the official publications of the state of Georgia and national congresses of "Colored Parents and Teachers."
The Walter O. Evans Collection of James Baldwin is comprised of a typescript draft of Baldwin's Another Country (New York: Dial Pub., 1962) and correspondence sent from Baldwin to Mary Garin-Painter, David Adams Leeming, and Eugene Lerner dating from 1953 to 1987. In his letters Baldwin discusses his writing projects and personal life (ranging from his relationships to his experience living abroad in France and Turkey). Baldwin also reflects on his experience at the MacDowell Colony where he was in residence while working on his novel Giovanni's Room. The correspondence constitutes a window into Baldwin's creative process and life during this period.
