Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
This collection consists of Helen Truesdell Heath's research materials and manuscripts of research related to the life of Samuel Pepys. It documents the long process of archival research on Samuel Pepys, and the numerous attempts that are taken by Heath to get this work published.
Helen Truesdell Heath (born Yetta Helen Walker) was born in Tucson, Arizona on June 18, 1897 to Mark Walker, Jr. and Alice Feldman. She received a B.A. from USC in 1918, followed by a teaching credential and a master's degree, also at USC .This ultimately helped her land a job as an English teacher for a public school from the mid 1930s to early 1940s. Following her career as an educator, she edited a collection of Samuel Pepys's family letters, which was published as The Letters of Samuel Pepys and His Family Circle in 1955. She did other work with the Pepys archive (reflected in this collection at the Clark Library), but this work does not appear to have been published.
