Scope and Content Note

Box 1

1. Transcripts

Scope and Content Note

The transcripts are the result of interviews (recorded on the tapes in Boxes 2-3) with people who knew or came into contact with Aldous Huxley and his own family. A majority of the interviewees are people who knew Huxley while he lived in California and, for the most part, cover his life after 1937. There is some material on his early life but it amounts to a very small part of the overall collection. Some of the interviews include Lady Juliette Huxley (the widow of Sir Julian Huxley), Christopher Isherwood, Mary Loos, Burgess Meredith, and Lawrence Clark Powell. The materials are filed alphabetically and then chronologically by date of interview.
Boxes 2-3
