Hugh Kenner Papers, 1916-1994 (bulk1943-1994).

Correspondence, offprints, clippings, typescripts, galley proofs, photographs, tearsheets, drawings, computer printouts and program sheets, holograph notes and drafts, notebooks, and academic papers document Hugh Kenner's career as critic, scholar, and educator. Subject Files is the largest of the three series, constituting one half of the Kenner papers. It includes a large number of papers and articles by colleagues of Kenner and topical files on individuals and subjects related to Kenner's academic interests. Some of the largest files document Samuel Beckett, T.S. Eliot, Buckminster Fuller, James Joyce, and Ezra Pound. The Works series contains various drafts, contracts, and correspondence for books, articles, lectures, reviews, and introductions by Kenner. The smallest series, Correspondence, largely comprises incoming letters to Kenner. Incoming correspondence and third-party correspondence is located throughout the papers. The bulk of the papers date from the late 1940s to the early 1990s. A very few items date as early as 1916, but these are generally photo reproductions of items or copies of letters.

106 boxes (45 linear feet), 3 oversize boxes, 1 oversize folder, 14 galley files.
