Biographical/Historical Note

Harry Crews (1935-2012) was a prolific novelist, born in Bacon County, Georgia. For futher information, see the article Harry Crews (1935-2012) at New Georgia Encyclopedia.


Scope and Content Note

The collection consists of the literary papers of American writer Harry Crews. These papers document his writing career up through the publication of his twentieth book, An American Family: The Child With the Curious Marking (2006). Typed and holograph manuscripts, correspondence, clippings, conference material, awards, literary and film contracts, financial statements, and photographs make up the bulk of materials, which generally date from the mid-1960s onward.

Correspondence includes Crews' mentor Andrew Lytle (who first published Crews in The Sewanee Review), letters from college friends/apprentice writers, and rejection slips and correspondences from prospective literary agents and publishers. Letters from the period when Crews published his first two novels -- The Gospel Singer, Naked in Garden Hills - include correspondence with his first literary agent, Bert Cochran, of American Authors, Inc., with John Hawkins of Paul Reynolds, Inc., who succeeded Cochran, and with Crews' editor at William Morrow, Jim Landis. Correspondence appears from other American writers - John Ciardi, Seymour Epstein, Maxine Kumin, William Meredith, Henry Van Dyke and others -- with whom Crews became acquainted through the Bread Loaf Writers Conference and the University of Florida Writers Conference, the latter which he co-directed between 1970-1974 with fellow UF writer and professor Smith Kirkpatrick. Other writers represented include Malcolm Braly, Robert Olen Butler, Erskine Caldwell, Daniel Mark Epstein, Barry Hannah, Jim Harrison, Joseph Heller, James Leo Herlihy, William Hjortsberg, Maxine Kumin, Norman Mailer, Tom McGuane, Tim McLaurin, Donn Pearce, James Tiptree, Dan Wakefield, Charles Willeford and Miller Williams.

In the 1970s there is also correspondence between Crews and his friend and fellow Florida writer/screenwriter Donn Pearce describing the screenwriting business, and an increasing flow of letters from anxious would-be producers seeking options on his novels. This period also is marked by the appearance of correspondence with editors at Playboy and Esquire, with whom Crews contracted to write magazine articles and (at Esquire) a monthly column, and with subsequent publishers and editors at Atheneum, Harper & Row, and Alfred A. Knopf in the United States and at Martin Secker & Warburg in England.

In the 1990s correspondence files begin to include writers like Jay Atkinson, former student of Crews', and Mississippi novelist Larry Brown, who first approached Crews as a fan in 1990 and with whom he would remain friends until Brown's death in 2004.

Series Descriptions and Folder Listing

 

1. Correspondence

11.0 box(es)
The material in this series ranges from exchanges with editors, agents, family and fellow writers, to Crews' apprentice-period rejection slips, fan mail, Christmas cards, and correspondence with scholars, reporters and academic acquaintances from the lecture circuit. Incoming correspondence is much heavier (approx. 1600 items) than outgoing (approximately 200). Crews' letters to others include handwritten drafts, typed and occasionally signed copies and carbons. Business letters designed primarily as contracts are filed in Business and Legal Papers; however, cover letters (for manuscripts or contracts, for example) that discuss other matters are filed in Correspondence, and preservation photocopies have been created and appended to the materials to which they originally came attached. Correspondence files occasionally include enclosures, such as clippings, works by others, and photographs; but all photos in which Crews is present have been removed to Series 5, Photographs. In instances where photographs, drawings, copies of writing, articles or other enclosures have been removed, preservation photocopies have been inserted with pertinent cross-references.

2. Works

60.0 box(es)
The Works series documents Crews' work from his first publication (the short story "An Unattached Smile," 1963) through An American Family (2006). The series includes all Crews' published novels, most of his stories, essays, journalism, reviews and other nonfiction writings, original screenplays, working and final scripts for his play Blood Issue, and some unpublished works of various types and lengths. Screenplays of Crews' novels adapted by other writers have been filed with the original works. The majority of the Works files contain Crews' handwritten and typescript drafts and revisions of his publications. In several instances notes and research materials, publisher's proofs of articles and books, and periodicals containing short works and excerpts of extended works are present; as are some publisher promotional materials, book jackets, and illustrative materials. Portions of one box - Assault of Memory - are restricted.
Writings files are arranged in three groups: 1) Extended Works, 2) Short Works, and 3) Articles, Essays, Reviews. In general, Crews' books, short stories, and screenplays are filed by the published title or, if unpublished, by the last working title. His articles and essays have been filed under Crews' working titles (when extant) rather than published titles, and his book reviews are filed by the book's title. Under each title, as best as possible, drafts have been organized in order of composition from earliest to latest, with fragments grouped together prior to complete drafts.
