Mary Hutchinson Papers, 1910-1977.

Correspondence makes up the bulk of the Mary Hutchinson Papers, 1910-1977, supplemented by a few holograph and typescript manuscripts by Hutchinson and other authors. The Works Series is composed of a few articles written by Hutchinson, including biographical sketches of several members of the Bloomsbury group, notes taken on the life and works of Samuel Beckett, and a list of the letters she received from Beckett. The Correspondence Series contains three subseries: A. Outgoing Correspondence, 1915-1973, B. Incoming Correspondence, 1910-1977; and C. Third-party Correspondence, 1912-1941. The collection of outgoing letters is fairly small, representing only a fraction of the letters Hutchinson must have written. Best represented in this section are her letters to her cousin Lytton Strachey of which 141 are included. Also present are a number of drafts of letters intended for Samuel Beckett. Incoming Correspondence makes up the bulk of these papers with well over 2,500 personal letters, postcards, notes, and telegrams sent to Hutchinson over a period of 60 years. By far the largest contributor to this section is Clive Bell with nearly 1400 letters. Other large accumulations of letters are present from Samuel Beckett, Vanessa Bell, Dora Carrington, T. S. and Vivienne Eliot, Aldous and Maria Huxley, Lytton Strachey, Henry Tonks, Virginia Woolf, David Wright, and others. Third-party Correspondence rounds out the Correspondence Series with a number of social and business letters to St. John Hutchinson from Thomas Earp, T. S. Eliot, Maria Huxley, and Henry Tonks, as well as others. The Works and Ephemera of Other Authors Series primarily contains the output of Hutchinson's writer friends, including Samuel Beckett, Clive Bell, Gilbert Cannan, Joseph Hone, and Aldous Huxley. Also present is a portrait photograph of Clive Bell taken by Roger Fry, book plates belonging to Huxley, and a fragment of Augustus John's autobiography.
