Scope and Contents note

From the Series:

Primarily manuscript and printed examples of Dell's writings. Included are manuscript copies of published novels Moon-Calf, The Briary-Bush and An Unmarried Father, plus unpublished stories, plays, novels, and fragments of novels. There are numerous poems and articles, both published and unpublished, and scrapbooks of clippings that contain examples of Dell's literary reviews. In the notebook section there are two notebooks written in the form of letters to Stanley Pargellis, entitled: "Daughters of Dreams and of Stories, Letters to Stanley Pargellis from Floyd Dell, 1952" and "Now That Our Youth Begins to Fade, A Letter to Stanley Pargellis, 1952". Also, there is a collection of publications of the WPA penned by Dell; Dell himself wrote in an attribution to his work if there was no credit given on the document.

The notations AD, ADS, TD, and TDS after the title of the work indicate Autograph Document, (in Dell's hand); Autograph Document Signed, Typed Document, or Typed Document Signed. Some are a combination of both, or printed with autograph annotations.
