Lilly Library Manuscript Collections


The Cabell mss., 1915-1935, consist of letters from author James Branch Cabell, 1879-1958, to a Mr. Allen, Mr. Bradley, Ogden W. Heath, one to poet George Sterling, and one to an unknown recipient whose name has been excised from the letter. All involve in some way Cabell's literary works. Also present is an undated, signed photograph, probably taken about 1926, and seven articles and reviews about Cabell, including a tear sheet from the Sept. 18, 1989 issue of AB Bookman's Weekly titled "James Branch Cabell and the Censors."
