Series 2
Works by Stanford, 1949-1980
Box 1: folder 6 - Box 6: folder 9

Scope and Content Note

The series consists of writings by Stanford from 1949-1980, and includes journals, notebooks, collected, collected and uncollected prose fiction, essays, and reviews. The series begins with Stanford's Selected Poems, then continues with notebooks containing draft material, manuscripts, and proofs of collected fiction, essays, and reviews. The series ends with uncollected fiction, introductions, and essays.

Stanford's collected prose is arranged chronologically by date of publication, and includes notebooks, manuscript and/or typescript versions of the pieces, and clean copies of the final version. Given Stanford's tendency to write multiple essays or reviews in a single notebook, notebooks are organized by first entry with connected entries for each subsequent piece. Stanford's essays are arranged chronologically by date of publication or lecture delivery. The reviews are arranged alphabetically by book author.
