Papers of Upton Sinclair [manuscript], 1905-1957.

The papers contain a manuscript interview by Sinclair regarding "The Money Changers." Correspondence with friends, journalists, publishers and other authors concerns his life, work, religious beliefs, travels, publication abroad, dramatizations, and the Socialist movement. Sinclair discusses his early years, rejection of his books, his poverty, family, divorce, and his ideas on religion, sex, marriage, and monogamy. He also discusses his political ideas, the Socialist movement, the San Francisco Preparedness Parade, 1916, rejection of violence, talks with German Social Democratic leaders, and World War I and his conviction that Germany must lose. He also discusses his articles and books and their publication in the United States, England and Scandinavia, and criticizes other authors particularly Frank Harris's book on Oscar Wilde and his autobiography "My Lives and Loves." He provides information, suggestions and critical commentary to his biographer James L. Harte. In addition there is an exchange of letters between Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and W.R. Browne regarding Sinclair, World War I and England's involvement in the war. There is also a manuscript by Romain Rolland "Declaration d'Independance de l'Esprit." An autograph and several clippings concerning Sinclair complete the collection.
