Scope and Contents

From the Collection:

The papers of MacKinlay Kantor consist of four boxes of manuscripts, dating from 1950 to 1958. The vast majority of these papers relate to his Civil War novel, Andersonville. There are correspondence files, drafts in a variety of stages, printer's and foundry proofs, and Kantor's notes, all of which concern the writing of Andersonville. There are also drafts from some of his other books, including Author's Choice, God and My Country, and Don't Touch Me. The final folder of the collection is made up of correspondence, publicity photographs and biographical information promoting a lecture tour for his novel Signal Thirty-Two.
