Subseries 2.3
Notebooks, circa 1978-1995
Boxes 43-46

Scope and Content Note

The notebooks subseries spans from roughly 1978 until circa 1995. These notebooks contain Fitzgerald's research on O'Connor's life, her family, and her writing. In the notebooks, Fitzgerald describes O'Connor's home Andalusia, her mother Regina Cline O'Connor, as well as the O'Connor and Cline family histories. Much of this material provided the foundation for Fitzgerald's talks and essays on O'Connor. In addition to Fitzgerald's research notes, the notebooks contain drafts of her writing and editing for the material in The Habit of Being and Collected Works. The notebooks were assigned numbers by the Rose Library staff to facilitate identification.
