Wallace Fowlie papers, 1939-1996 and undated.

Collection consists mainly of correspondence sent to Fowlie, but also publications authored by Fowlie, typescript and handwritten drafts by Fowlie, newspaper and newsletter article clippings pertaining to Fowlie, and other assorted printed material. A significant portion of the correspondence comprises exchanges with Fowlie and Thomas and Kit Foster, close friends of Fowlie. These letters mainly address personal and family matters (health issues, vacations and meetings with mutual friends), but also cover projects Fowlie was working on, teaching positions accepted and rejected, and class progress, and other matters of professional relevance. Other smaller amounts of correspondence, much of which is in French, come from Robert Heslen, a former student of Fowlie, and well-known writers, artists, and poets, including René Char, Jean Cocteau, André Gide, Alexis Léger (Saint-Jean Perse), Marianne Moore, Anaïs Nin, and others, discussing French literature, their writings and careers, and Fowlie's writings. A folder of general correspondence contains single letters from a variety of colleagues and friends.
