White, Newman Ivey, 1892-1948. Newman I. White papers, 1915-1948.

Newman I. White papers, 1915-1948.

Papers include correspondence, lectures, research materials, including notecards, copies of letters, manuscripts, and photographs, along with printed matter, miscellaneous writings, and other papers, with bulk dates of 1936-1948. Most of the material reflects his work on Percy Bysshe Shelley and the English Romantic poets; a small amount of reprints and lectures concerns folklore. Much of the correspondence is between White and scholars of the English poets; correspondents include T.J. Wise, Frederick L. Jones, and George L. Kittredge. Several folders of correspondence with members of the publishing firm of Alfred A. Knopf regard the publication of SHELLEY in 1940. A letter from Duke faculty member Calvin B. Hoover describes Nazi Germany in 1932, and several of White's European correspondents comment on conditions in Europe during World War II.
