Moulton, Louise Chandler, 1835-1908. Papers, ca. 1855-1909.

Papers, ca. 1855-1909.

This collection is made up largely of Moulton's poems, some printed copies, but mostly in her hand. Herbert Edwin Clarke (1852- ), the English poet and literary critic, graded some of the poems and these grades are written on the poems in pencil. Some with the initials "L. [I.?] G. (Louise Imogen Guiney (1861-1920)?) also graded a few of the poems. The collection contains a folder of her early literary efforts (poems signed: Ellen Louise; Ellen Louise Chandler; Ellen Louise Chandler Moulton; or E.L.C.M.). There are other literary efforts, including a short story entitled "A Rose and A Ring: A Story for Valentine's Day;" an incomplete account of a trip to Spain in 1883, along with poems written in 1884; a printed essay about Arthur O'Shaughnessy (1844- ); and other miscellaneous writings. There is a "List of Books," written in 1899, which seems to be notes regarding her published works, as well as a list of her books along with the dates they were published. There is also a list of her "New Year's Sonnets." The collection also contains poems by other authors. Some of the authors have been identified, while others have not, and some are in Moulton's hand, while others are not. The collection contains correspondence to Moulton from a variety of correspondents, including A.J. Warner Browne, Horace P. Chandler, Herbert E. Clarke, Lucy Lane Clifford ( -1929), Charles Gibson, Florence Henniker ( -1923), Peter La Rose, Whitelaw Reid (1837-1912), William Sharp (1855-1905), George Snyder (1820?- ), Edward Stanwood (1841-1923), E.C. Stedman, William Watson (1858-1935), Leroy Titus Weeks, Anne Whitney, and William Winter (1836-1917). Moulton was careful to note on the envelope the correspondent, subject of the letter, and whether she had answered the letter. There is a folder of correspondence from Moulton; recipients include Financial Directory Association, H. Rider Haggard (1856-1925), Frederic Henry Hedge (1805-1890), Minot Judson Savage (1841-1918), and Lilian Whiting (1847-1942), author of the biography _Louise Chandler Moulton, Poet and Friend_. There is a folder of miscellaneous correspondence, including a letter from Shan F. Bullock (1865-1935) to Coulson Kernahan (1858-1943), the English author; a letter from Julian Hawthorne (1846-1934) to Robert Edward Francillon (1841-1919); letters from William Sharp to Herbert E. Clarke; and letters to Lilian Whiting regarding Mrs. Moulton. There is a folder of correspondence to Moulton written for her and placed in a "Mid Ocean Post Bag" for her amusement while she sailed to Europe in 1887. The collection also includes correspondence from John Miller Dow Meiklejohn (1830-1902), the Scottish educator, who wrote criticisms of some of Moulton's poetry. The remainder of the collection includes newspaper clippings; a brief essay on Moulton by Kernahan; a pamphlet, published by the Trustees of the Boston Public Library in 1909, listing the books in Moulton's gift to the Library; and a few notes found in the collection.
