Letters from or about Eudora Welty [manuscript], 1941-1966.

Letters from Eudora Welty to sisters Alice Farley and Nancy Farley O'Brien convey personal news and Christmas greetings, respond to invitations, and mention work on her unnamed short stories, and no openings in archives jobs. She makes one reference to William Faulkner :"I hear life in Oxford will never be the same, since the Moguls have arrived to film Faulkner." A letter from Leon Henderson to Nancy Farley requests her presence at a Nation Associates dinner for a discussion of the atomic bomb. The remaining letters are from John F. Robinson to Alice or Nancy Farley and contain comments on Eudora Welty and her work including her books "The curtain is green" and "Robber bridegroom," and a short story "The petrified man," her admiration for Katherine Anne Porter and dislike of "The grapes of wrath." He also describes Welty's new novel about the rural Oxford people.
