More Than One Struggle Oral History Project Records, 1939-2004, bulk 1995-1996

Scope and Content Note

This series constitutes the majority of the collection. It almost entirely consists of corrected and uncorrected galleys of works; correspondence with contributors; graphic materials (photographs and reproductions) usually published in the magazine; holograph manuscripts; newsclippings (1920-1964) about Anderson, Heap, and the Little Review; and typescripts.

The collection includes letters, poetry, and prose by artists and writers such as Louis Aragon, André Breton, Jean Cocteau, Hart Crane, Theo van Doesburg, Marcel Duchamp, Ernest Hemingway, James Joyce, Vachel Lindsay, Amy Lowell, Francis Picabia, and William Carlos Williams.

A typescript in "Joyce, James" (box 12, folder 2) is of Ulysses, Chapter 14, and is an incomplete portion of the chapter intended for publication in the Little Review. The galley proof (oversize folder 1) is from the third galley proof of Continuation of a Work in Progress. The handwritten changes made by Joyce were likely incorporated into the fourth galley proof, upon which the published version was based. Continuation of a Work in Progress became Finnegans Wake in 1939. The Jolas, Maria correspondence (box 7, folder 30) likely refers to mailing the galley proofs.
