The Beinecke Rare Book & Manuscript Library is thrilled to announce that it has acquired an archive of some 100 letters of James Baldwin, as well as a corrected typescript of Baldwin's third novel Another Country. The letters constiute one of the largest groups of Baldwin manuscripts held by any institution. They were purchased from Walter O. Evans, a collector and patron of African American arts and letters.
