Scope and Content Information

The collection contains Booton Herndon's working files of manuscripts for his books and articles together with related research material, correspondence, drafts, illustrative material and some proof. This collection is particularly useful in showing the various stages of production of an article or book by a professional writer.

Reed, and exercise. Frequent topics for articles include sports, particularly football, World War II, and Charlottesville and Albemarle County, Virginia. Of interest is an article by Paul Gaston and Thomas Hamond on public school desegregation in Charlottesville, Virginia.

Correspondents include Patty Duke Astin, Roger N. Baldwin, Mortimer Caplin, Arthur Hailey, Dorothy Kenyon, Fulton Lewis, Jr., Littauer and Wilkinson, Robert D. Loomis, Eddie Rickenbacker, William B. Spong, Max Wilkinson, and Babe Zaharias.

Arrangement

Arrangement

These papers are arranged chronologically within each topical folder, maintaining Herndon's original organization whenever possible. A small group of unpublished manuscripts of fiction and non-fiction articles compose a separate series at the end of the collection.

Organization

Herndon's papers have been divided into two series. Series I, Alphabetical Files, is a topical arrangement of his working files of various ideas for stories, articles, and books. Each file contains all of the material pertinent to its own subject whether correspondence, research material, illustrative material, or manuscript. A few of the more frequent correspondents will be listed with the folder name in which they appear, and if necessary, with dates of their letters. Series II, Miscellaneous Articles & Stories, consists of several folders of unpublished manuscripts by Herndon.
