Isaac Bashevis Singer Papers, 1775, 1923-1995.

Most of Singer's fictional works and many of his nonfiction essays and reviews are represented in the papers. The Works series includes Singer's short stories, novels, radio scripts, stage and screenplays, articles, reviews, poems, introductions to books by other authors, and lectures. Most of Singer's translated novels and short stories appeared originally in Yiddish in the Jewish Daily Forward (Forverts) and so exist in both Yiddish and English, as well as other languages. Correspondence primarily consists of letters to Singer (although his outgoing letters to Alma Singer and a few others are present) and dates mostly from the 1940s until Singer's death in 1991. Singer's financial and legal papers, photographs and snapshots, notebooks and notes, various clippings and ephemera, and appointment books are also present, as are works about Singer and a variety of works by other authors. However, works by Singer's sister, Ester Kreytman, and brother Israel Joshua Singer, who were also novelists, are not included.
