CAUGER, RICHARD E. MSS.
The Cauger, Richard E. mss., ca. 1923-1997, consist of the research notes and note cards, slides, documents, articles, books, correspondence and the long draft typescript manuscript (missing pages 495-518) of a planned biography of Mary Donovan Hapgood written by Cauger. Also included are copies of Mary Hapgood materials held by the Lilly Library.
Cauger, a member of the English faculty at Butler University, met Mrs. Hapgood while working for Sen. Eugene McCarthy's 1967-68 presidential campaign. They remained in contact for many years and eventually Mrs. Hapgood requested that Cauger write her biography. However, his untimely death at the age of forty-one did not allow him time to complete the project.
