Lilly Library Manuscript Collections


The Morley mss., 1917-1924 and 1958, consist of letters from author Christopher Darlington Morley, 1890-1957, to Sir Sidney Colvin, 1845-1927. The letters discuss Morley's activities and family, his changes in journalistic positions, and events in the United States relating to America's entry into World War I. The last letter, written in 1924 just after Morley had joined the Saturday Review, mentions his meeting and association with author Joseph Conrad, 1857-1924.

One letter, written sometime about 1920, is addressed to writer Charles Lewis Hind, 1862-1927, rather than to Colvin.

A mimeographed copy of a talk delivered by Morley's younger brother, Frank Vigor Morley, 1899-1980, at Haverford College in 1958, completes the collection.
