Inventory of the The Rudyard Kipling Collection: 1882-1982

The Cushing Memorial Library collects books, manuscripts, and other items relating to the life and works of Rudyard Kipling. The core of the collection was acquired by the Library from Dr. A. W. Yeats in the late 1980's. The collection, through a large display of original and reproduced letters, as well as many newspaper clippings and articles written about him, gives a peek at the kind of everyday tasks that Rudyard, as a famous author, and his wife Caroline had to contend with. There are some 36 Rudyard Kipling autograph pieces, all of which are letters excluding a few poems and miscellaneous items. Along with the letters, clippings, and many books in the Rudyard Kipling Collection at Texas A&M University, the collection contains items such as an autograph copy of framed with an illustration by an unidentified artist, the manuscript for and the ledger book of Mr. T.E.
