Jacobson, Dan. Papers, 1941-1994.

Papers, 1941-1994.

The Jacobson papers consist of original and carbon copy typescripts, holograph manuscripts, computer printouts, notebooks, correspondence, clippings, galley proofs, page proofs, dust jackets, book reviews and advertisements, offprints, programs, handbills, personal documents, and a sound recording, ranging in date from 1941 to 1994. Most of Jacobson's creative works are represented in the collection. For some works, multiple drafts and corrected proofs reveal Jacobson's revision processes, while published reviews show critical response. Common themes in Jacobson's works include racial problems in South Africa, Judaism, and human consciousness. Many of Jacobson's critical works are also present, as are interviews with and articles about him. Most of the correspondence in the collection is incoming correspondence from publishers, periodicals, and other authors. Among the correspondents are Philip Larkin, Mary McCarthy, and Leonard Woolf. Also of significance are fifty-nine letters from Jacobson's literary agent, Henry Volkening, covering the years 1954-64. Among the few personal items in the collection are correspondence regarding Jacobson's application for the Somerset Maugham Award and correspondence relating to his role as a director of Index on Censorship.
