Series IV: Subject Files, 1841-2011

The largest of the collection, this series contains drafts, correspondence, clippings, photographs, and notes gathered by Rosset over the years, reflecting his interests, tastes, concerns, both professional and personal. Included here are Rosset's FOIA files, the notes and drafts of his Autobiography, The Subject is Left-Handed , materials related to his 1948 documentary Strange Victory, correspondence with friends, lovers, colleagues, publishers, authors and artists, his travel documents, including original print matter Rosset collected, his passports, licenses, etc., as well as materials about/from Grove Press, Evergreen Review, Grove Film, and a trove of interviews and press about Rosset. The dates correspond largely to the notations made on the original binders, even when the documents have been transcribed and printed at a later date. Materials are often a combination of originals and transcriptions, or photocopies, or printouts, without originals.
