    Description of the Collection

    These papers, dating from 1946 to 1991, pertain primarily to his teaching and research at Brown, Indiana, and Stanford Universities and include correspondence, his manuscripts and typescripts, course materials, research notes, and his published works. There are also materials pertaining to the American Association for the Advancement of Slavic Studies, works by other scholars and students, and photographs, including images of Vladimir Mayakovsky and of Moscow. Some materials are in Russian. These papers are partially processed. The correspondence files have been separated and the various chronological arrangements that Brown used were interfiled. These papers were then refoldered and reboxed and an index was prepared. The remaining papers have not yet been processed, but are available. They are in Boxes IB through 26B and 27 through 36 and have only box descriptions, not folder listings. Both listings also exist in database form and can be searched. Please see the reference staff for assistance.

    Biographical History

    Edward James Brown was a pioneer in the academic study of Russian literature in the United States. Brown received his bachelor's and master's degrees from the University of Chicago and his Ph.D. from Columbia University. He joined the faculty at Brown University in 1947, where he established the undergraduate and graduate programs in Slavic Studies. He left Brown in 1965 to teach at Indiana University. In the late 1960s he was also president of the American Association of Teachers of Slavic and Eastern European Languages and of the American Association for the Advancement of Slavic Studies. He joined the Stanford faculty in 1970; he retired in 1975 but continued to teach. He died in 1991.
    His published works included The Proletarian Episode in Russian Literature, 1928-1932 (1953, 1971), Russian Literature Since the Revolution (1982), and Mayakovsky: A Poet in the Revolution (1973). He directed the Summer Seminar on Soviet Literature and Society, held at Stanford in 1986.
