Papers of Franklin Benjamin Sanborn, 1851-1914.

The collection contains the manuscripts of 61 partial or complete poems, two partial verse plays, a biographical and critical discussion of Ralph Waldo Emerson, a prologue spoken by Edward W. Emerson at the opening of the Concord Theatre in 1857, and a quotation about John Brown. Sanborn's correspondence is chiefly about his writing. Letters to and from the Torch Press of Cedar Rapids, Iowa, concern the "Life of John Brown," "Recollections of 70 years, " and monographs on Bronson Alcott and Nathaniel Hawthorne, and discuss illustrations, printing, publication, costs and advertisements. Other topics include friends and fellow writers particularly Bronson Alcott, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Henry D. Thoreau, Nathaniel Hawthorne, Walt Whitman, Franklin Pierce, Ellery Channing and Richard W. Gilder; meetings of the American Social Science Association; his school in Concord, Mass.; lectures in Iowa; and thoughts on the outbreak of the Civil War. A facsimile of a letter from Nathaniel Hawthorne to an unidentified correspondent (mistakenly believed to have been Sanborn) mentions the "Old Manse." There are also three photographs, a newspaper clipping regarding Sanborn's arrest for disturbing the peace, and a typed description of Hawthorne's ideas.
