Elizabeth Sutherland Martinez Papers, 1964-1966

Scope and Content Note

The papers, 1964-1966, relate exclusively to her book Letters From Mississippi and include editorial correspondence, letters and biographical information on about forty of the volunteers, news releases, drafts, and promotional material. Many of the original letters of the volunteers are missing or were so heavily edited that they could not be reconstructed in their original state. Two successive draft versions and additional cuts are arranged by chapter.
