Description

Scope and Content

Correspondence and literary manuscripts of Freedman. The correspondence includes letters from Josephine Daskam Bacon, Arthur Farwell, Louis Anspacher, Louis Cazamian, George Santayana, James B. Conant, and Bernard Berenson. Some of these letters are on personal matters, but many relate to the publication of two of his books, ROSES GREEN, ROSES BLACK (1935) and SIMPLE INSANITIES (1936). There is also some correspondence with outstanding religious leaders in New York on the subject of anti-Semitism. The manuscripts include both prose and poetry and are largely unpublished.
