Papers, 1935-1973.

Manuscripts of short stories, novels, and other writings, correspondence, clippings of reviews, and miscellany trace the writing career of Prudencio De Pereda, 1935-1973. The collection depicts the author's early career in New York, his interactions with editors and publishers, and with other writers of the period. De Pereda's work reflects the influence of Ernest Hemingway, especially during the Spanish Civil War, when they met and worked together on the commentary for the films SPAIN IN FLAMES and THE SPANISH EARTH. De Pereda's later literary output is represented by manuscripts of his three novels (ALL THE GIRLS WE LOVED, FIESTA, and WINDMILLS IN BROOKLYN) and his translation of JEWISH GAUCHOS OF THE PAMPAS. Correspondents include Carlos Baker, Alvah Cecil Bessie, Paul Bowles, Richard Burton, Padraic Colum, Victor Gollancz, Ernest Hemingway (photocopies only), James Laughlin, William March, Anäis Nin, Edward O'Brien, Philip Rahv, and Richard Wright.
