Papers of Alexander Irvine, 1863-1986 (bulk 1906-1941).

The collection consists mostly of Irvine's manuscripts, arranged alphabetically by title. The entirety of the first and the beginning of the second box consist of manuscript drafts - both typescript and autograph - of chapters from the author's larger works. The rest of the second box consists of manuscript drafts of sermons which Irvine gave after the turn of the century, most of them from his 1909-1910 tenure at the Church of the Ascension in New York City. The third upright box consists entirely of Irvine's manuscript essays, many of which appeared in publication. Most of these manuscripts are undated but it appears the bulk of these papers come the Irvine's final thirty years. The collection's final upright box contains the rest of Irvine's manuscripts. It also contains twenty-four folders of Irvine's correspondence, three folders of news clippings, six folders of ephemera, and one folder of photos. There are several items in oversize. Two large scrapbooks, each housed individually, contain a great deal of ephemera, photographs, and correspondence which Irvine himself organized. Other items in oversize include a small scrapbook containing mainly photos and news clippings from 1922 to 1938, and a large, thin packet containing four editions of The Psychological Review of Reviews from the early 1920s. There are also two oversize manuscripts: one a fragment from the draft of a script, and the other an undated essay titled "The Cost of Something for Nothing." Subjects in the collection include: John Brown; California; Eugene Debs; Carter Glass; Grand Army of the Republic; Hitler Youth; John L. Lewis; Abraham Lincoln; Jack London; Mexican Revolution; New York City; Franklin Delano Roosevelt; Upton Sinclair; socialism; tuberculosis; Mark Twain; World War I; World War II; vaudeville; vigilantes; and Yale University.
