Biographical Sketch

Wallace Stevens (1879-1955) was one of the foremost American poets of the first half of the 20th century. Born in Reading, Pennsylvania, Stevens retained an interest during his lifetime in his native Berks County, Pennsylvania. His wife, Elsie Viola (Moll) Stevens, came from Reading, and both Stevens and his wife devoted considerable time and energy (primarily in the 1940's) tracing their family ancestries.
Though Stevens refused to consider his life a dichotomy, his poetic activities were accomplished while he was holding a full-time position as a legal advisor for the Hartford Accident and Indemnity Company in Hartford, Connecticut, the firm for which he acted as Vice-President from 1934 until his death in 1955.
Stevens began writing verse as a student at Harvard University and had a number of his verses published in the Harvard Advocate and the Harvard Monthly between 1898 and 1900. In 1908 and 1909 Stevens presented his future wife, Elsie Viola Moll, with two little notebooks of poems ( A Book of Verses and The Little June Book) which gathered together short poems Stevens had been experimenting with since leaving Harvard. Between 1914 and 1923 Stevens submitted poems to a number of journals, including Poetry (edited by Harriet Monroe), The Dial and Others (edited by Alfred Kreymborg). In 1923 was published Stevens' first book of poems, Harmonium. With Harmonium began a lifelong association with the publishing firm Alfred A. Knopf Inc. Stevens did, however, offer the small fine press, the Cummington Press, three of his books: Notes Toward a Supreme Fiction (1942), Esthitique du Mal (1945) and Three Academic Pieces (1947). The Alcestis Press, under the direction of Ronald Lane Latimer, printed Ideas of Order (1935) and Owl's Clover (1936).
Stevens was twice awarded the National Book Award: in 1950 for The Auroras of Autumn (1950) and in 1954 for Collected Poems (1954). He was awarded the Pulitzer Prize in 1955.

Subject Matter and Arrangement of the Collection

(Boxes 1-8)

I. Manuscripts

 

A. Dedicatory poems to Stevens, essays about Stevens (e.g. by Robert M. Pack and Mary Bernetta Quinn) and adaptations and translations of Stevens' poems (e.g. by Renato Poggioli).

Scope and Content Note

Especially interesting pieces: Hermann Hesse, Zwvlf Gedichte: 12 autograph poems in German, presented by Hesse to Stevens, each with a watercolor drawing. (WAS 223)
[Hywel David Lewis], On Poetic Truth: essay first published in Philosophy (July 1946), in Stevens' hand. (WAS 4093)
 

B. Manuscripts of Stevens' poems, essays and speeches.

Scope and Content Note

These are both autograph and typewritten. When Stevens' secretary/stenographer prepared his typescripts, she made 3 copies: an original and 2 carbons. When a carbon copy exists along with the original typescript, it has been catalogued with the original unless it contains annotations or corrections by Stevens.
Most of the manuscripts have been published in one of three places: 1) a published work of Stevens, 2) Opus Posthumous, ed. Samuel French Morse, 1957 or 3) Robert Buttel, Wallace Stevens: The Making of Harmonium, 1967. When assigning dates to manuscripts, evidence given by Morse, Buttel, J.M. Edelstein, Wallace Stevens: A Descriptive Bibliography, 1973, and the correspondence have all been weighed.

Adagia:
2 notebooks of aphorisms. 33p. [1930?-1955]. (WAS 70)

Boxes 9-66

II. Correspondence

Scope and Content Note

The heart of the Collection is the correspondence between Stevens and his family, scholars, poets, editors, business associates and friends. All of the correspondence (except that relating to genealogy) has been fully catalogued.
Although there is some correspondence of minor importance, such as friends' greetings while Stevens was convalescing in 1955, most of it has an interest from either a biographical or poetical viewpoint. Many of the letters from Stevens were published in 1966 by his daughter: Letters of Wallace Stevens, ed. Holly Stevens, 1966. But still unpublished is the other side of the correspondence--to Stevens--amounting to about 2,500 pieces. The bulk of Stevens' letters are carbon copies, with the exception of his letters to Barbara S. Church, Wilson E. Taylor and Elsie Viola (Moll) Stevens. Stevens began to keep carbon copies regularly only after the early 1940's, so his letters from the earlier period are scarce in the Collection. A brief notice of the kinds of correspondence in the Collection is given below:
 

A. Family Letters

Scope and Content Note

  • 1. The most significant family figure is Stevens' wife, Elsie Viola (Moll) Stevens. Her real name was Elsie Viola Kachel, but when her mother remarried, Elsie took on the surname Moll. Most of the correspondence is from Stevens to Elsie, 1907 (before their engagement) until 1935. (271 pieces; WAS 1776-2047). The principal letters from Elsie are to her stepfather and mother, Lehman W. and Ida Bright (Smith) Kachel Moll and to her half-sister, Dorothy La Rue (Moll) Weidner.
  • 2. Family correspondents and their relationship to Wallace Stevens:
    • (a) Holly Bright Stevens: Daughter of Wallace & Elsie Stevens. Born in 1924. First married name: Hanchak (son: Peter Reed Hanchak). Second married name: Stephenson. Her maiden name is used throughout in the Collection
    • (b) Garrett Barcalow Stevens a (1848-1911): Wallace Stevens' father
    • (c) Margaretha Catharine (Zeller) Stevens (1848-1912): Wallace Stevens' mother
    • (d) Garrett Barcalow Stevens b (1877-1937): Wallace Stevens' elder brother. Wife: Sarah Shelley (Stayman) Stevens
    • (e) John Bergen Stevens a (1880-1940): Wallace Stevens' younger brother. Son: John Bergen Stevens b. Wife: Anna May Stevens. Daughter: Eleanor (Stevens) Sauer. Husband: John C. Sauer
    • (f) Elizabeth (Stevens) MacFarland (1885-1943): Wallace Stevens' elder sister. Daughter: Jane (MacFarland) Stone Wilson
    • (g) Mary Catharine Stevens (1889-1919): Wallace Stevens' younger sister, killed in France during World War I
 

B. Foreign Correspondence

Additional Note

Although Stevens never travelled abroad (other than to Havana), he was always interested to read about foreign places and to correspond with foreigners. Some of the most engaging correspondence is with foreign writers, many of them not great poets in their own right, but whose letters with Stevens are among the finest in the Collection for the insights they give into Stevens the man and the poet. The most notable figures are:
  • 1. Rosamond (Bates) Cary: 6 letters, 1931-1936. (WAS 2071-2076). Stevens to RBC: 6 carbons, 1935-1936. (WAS 2077-2082). Mrs. Cary was an American living in Otaru, Japan. Stevens asked her to select a number of Japanese toys and traditional items as gifts for Elsie and Holly Stevens.
  • 2. Peter H. Lee: 13 letters, 1951-1955.(WAS 1030-1042). Stevens to PHL: 8 carbons, 1954-1955.(WAS 1043-1050). Lee was a Korean poet.
  • 3. Robert McAlmon: 13 letters, [1921-1924]. (WAS 1150-1162). McAlmon, an American writer living and writing in Europe, wrote some extremely good letters about Joyce and other literary figures in the 1920's.
  • 4. Thomas MacGreevy: 39 letters, 1948-1955. (WAS 141-158; 161-180). Stevens to TM: 17 carbons, 1948-1955. (WAS 181-197). MacGreevy was appointed Director of the National Gallery of Ireland in 1950. The MacGreevy-Stevens correspondence brings out Stevens' interest in painting and the other arts.
  • 5. José Rodriguez-Feo: 51 letters, 1944-1954. (WAS 1588-1638). Stevens to JR-F: 9 carbons, 1948-1955. (WAS 1639-1647). Warms letters from and to a young Cuban poet, many concerning the meaning of Stevens' poetry.
  • 6. Leonard Van Geyzel: 15 letters, 1938-1954. (WAS 2450-2464). Stevens to LVG: 18 carbons and 1 L.S., 1937-1954. (WAS 2470-2488). Van Geyzel was an Englishman working on a tea plantation in Ceylon who read widely in modern literature. Interesting correspondence regarding Stevens' literary and political (World War II) views.
  • 7. Anatole Vidal: 20 letters, 1935-1940, in French. (WAS 2650-2669). Anatole Vidal was the Parisian bookseller who, like his daughter Paule after his death, provided Stevens with French books and magazines and purchased for Stevens original paintings by contemporary French artists, including Auberjonois, Maurice Brianchon, Roger Callois and Tal Coat. The Anatole and Paule Vidal correspondence is of the utmost importance in defining Stevens' attitudes toward modern art and literature.
  • 8. Paule Vidal: 80 letters, 1945-1955,in French. (WAS 2806-2885). Stevens to PV: 110 carbons, 1945-1955. (WAS 2886-2995). Paule Vidal took over her father's bookshop in Paris after his death in the early 1940's and continued the flourishing correspondence with Stevens.
  • 9. Correspondence regarding tea: Stevens was a connoisseur of fine foods and enjoyed sending away for tea in particular. These letters give some idea of his personal habits: 1935-1938.(WAS 1170-1176, 1346-1349).
 

C. Business Associates

Additional Note

The Collection does not contain letters from the files of the Hartford Accident and Indemnity Company. The following correspondents were business associates as well as friends:
  • 1. C.L. Daughtry: 7 pieces, 1943-[1955].(WAS 492-498). Stevens to CLD: 40 pieces, 1931-1955,mostly originals. (WAS 499-538).
  • 2. Arthur Gray Powell (known as "Judge Powell"): 6 letters, 1940-1950. (WAS 1477-1482).
  • 3. Wilson E. Taylor: 12 letters, [1939?]-1955, including 5 carbons. (WAS 3837-3848). Stevens to WET: 96 letters, 1933-1955, originals. (WAS 3849-3944).
 

D. Literary Correspondents

Additional Note

The crux of the Collection deals with Stevens' poetry; a good 5/8 of the correspondence falls into this category. The following list deals only with the very important correspondents--important in their own right or important for the quality of the correspondence. The list is by no means complete. Many of the editors of journals, critics and publishers that figure in the Collection are not on the following list but may be found alphabetically in the Manuscript Catalogue. All letters in the list are addressed to or written by Stevens.
Note: Marguerite G. Flynn, whose name figures in some of the correspondence, was Stevens' secretary and stenographer. She personally answered some of Stevens' letters, especially in 1955 when Stevens was hospitalized. Letters written by her are catalogued under her name, not Stevens'.
  • 1. Henry Hall Church: 102 pieces, 1939-[1947]. (WAS 3366-3467). Stevens to HHC: 94 pieces, 1939-1947, mostly carbons. (WAS 3468-3561). Barbara S. Church: 112 pieces, 1942-1955. (WAS 3563-3674). Stevens to BSC: 148 letters, 1 942-1955, mostly originals. (WAS 3678-3825). The Church-Stevens correspondence is undoubtedly the most important (and numerous) in the Collection. Henry Church and Stevens were both interested in French literature and, during the war years when the Church's were unable to spend half the year in their home at Ville d'Avray, France, Stevens saw the Church's frequently and became close friends with them, so that in his correspondence with both Henry and Barbara Church he frequently and honestly speaks of his personal and literary life.
  • 2. Edward Estlin Cummings: 4 letters, 1944-1950. (WAS 1-4). Stevens to EEC: 2 carbons, 1947-1950.(WAS 5-6).
  • 3. Harry Duncan (of the Cummington Press): 61 letters, 1943-1951. (WAS 555-615). Stevens to HD: 9 carbons, 1945-1950. (WAS 616-624).
  • 4. Katharine Frazier (of the Cummington Press): 19 letters, 1941-1943. (WAS 647-665).
  • 5. Robert Lee Frost: 1 A.L.S. (and photograph), July 28, 1935. (WAS 365).
  • 6. Victor Karl Hammer: 32 letters, 1946-1952. (WAS 776-807). Stevens to VKH: 11 carbons, 1948-1951. (WAS 808-818).
  • 7. Alfred A. Knopf: 64 letters, 1920-1955. (WAS 3084-3147). Stevens to AAK: 44 carbons, 1930-1955. (WAS 3148-3191). The following (a-d) are the major associates with Alfred A. Knopf Inc. in the correspondence:

(Boxes 72-79) (2,557 pieces)

VI. Genealogical Material

Scope and Content Note

In the early 1940's, Wallace Stevens began an extensive correspondence to tract his family ancestry. Elsie Stevens also took an active interest in tracing her roots. Over 2,000 pieces of genealogical material resulted, in the form of letters, documents and typescripts. The material dates primarily from the 1940's. Why Stevens took such pains to trace his ancestry is open to speculation, but two possible reasons could be 1) the death of most of his family (i.e. brothers and sisters) in the late 1930's and early 1940's and 2) Holly Stevens' decision to leave Vassar College without a degree in 1942. Stevens' attempt to define and describe his family could well have been to reassure both himself and his daughter of their heritage.
The genealogical material has been semi-catalogued and is arranged alphabetically in the following general order:
