This collection contains correspondences, notes,
and other material regarding J. Lloyd Eaton, a physician and book collector. Eaton’s
book collection of about 7,500 hardback editions of science fiction, fantasy and
horror from the late nineteenth century to 1955 was acquired by UC Riverside and
formed the foundation of the Eaton Science Fiction & Fantasy Collection.
Included in his papers are the index cards, maintained by Eaton that list the books
from his original collection, that contain his hand annotations on the rarity and
condition of books as well as story summaries and ratings.
