Biographies

1. Gertrude Stein.
Gertrude Stein was born in Alleghany, Pennsylvania, on 3 February 1874, the youngest of five children of Daniel Stein, a wealthy businessman, and his wife Amelia Keyser. The family spent the year 1877/1878 in Vienna and Paris, and upon returning settled in Oakland, California. Her mother died in 1888, and her father in 1891, at which time the eldest son, Michael, took over the family business affairs, and Gertrude and her sister went to live with the family of David Bacharach (who had married their maternal aunt) in Baltimore. Stein attended Radcliffe College from 1893 to 1897, where she was mentored by William James, under whose guidance she and another student, Leon Mendez Solomons, studied and published a paper on normal motor automatism. At James's urging, Stein entered Johns Hopkins Medical School, although she professed no interest in medical theory or practice. Confronting a male-dominated culture and realizing she could not conform to the role expected of females, she failed several classes and left after two years, without taking a degree. In 1902, she followed her brother, Leo, to Europe; they settled in Paris the following year. Between 1904 and 1914, at their shared household at 27 rue de Fleurus, the Steins assembled a collection of modern art--in particular, Renoir, Cézanne, Matisse, and Picasso--that for its size and quality was considered the most important of its time. Gertrude also hosted a salon attended by many of the most important artistic and literary figures of the day. Leo and Gertrude dissolved their household, splitting their collection, in 1914, under acrimonious circumstances. Gertrude retained the Picassos, most of the Matisse, and all but one of the Cézanne; the bulk of this collection was dispersed over the years, and at Stein's death consisted primarily of works by Picasso, Juan Gris, and Sir Francis Rose.
Stein first began writing in 1903, beginning Q.E.D. (Quod Erat Demonstrandum), an account of her ill-starred relationship with Mabel Haynes, Grace Lounsbury, and May Bookstaver (not published until 1950), and a first version of the novel The Making of Americans (finished in 1911, published in 1925), a fictionalized account of her own family. Stein met Alice B. Toklas, her life partner, in 1907; they took up residence together in 1910. Her first published book, Three Lives, appeared in 1909, as did her short essays on Picasso and Matisse, the first English-language texts to be published on these artists. Tender Buttons was published in 1914. Stein and Toklas were absent from Paris during much of World War I. Stein acquired a car in 1917, and she and Toklas used it as a truck to carry supplied for the American Fund for French Wounded, supplying hospitals in Perpignan and Nîmes. They returned to Paris in 1919, where many of the French members of Stein's salon dispersed, to be replaced by young American expatriates. In 1922, Stein first met Ernest Hemingway, and the phrase most associated with her, "rose is a rose is a rose", first appeared in print, in Geography and Plays. In 1926, Stein's lecture on her own writing style, "Composition as Explanation", was published by Leonard and Virginia Woolf's Hogarth Press. In 1927, Stein first met the composer Virgil Thomson, and began work on the libretto for their opera, Four Saints in Three Acts; Toklas also cut Stein's hair in the short, masculine style that was her signature look the rest of her life. In 1928, Stein wrote How to Write, reflections on language, grammar, sentences, and grammar. The following year, Stein and Toklas rented the house in Bilignin (Ain) that became their summer residence. In 1932 Stein wrote The Autobiography of Alice B. Toklas, her first accessible book; it was published the following year and became a bestseller, making Stein an international star. Four Saints in Three Acts premiered in 1934, directed by John Houseman, with choreography by Frederick Ashton. From October 1934 to May 1935, Stein toured the United States to popular acclaim, although confounding some critics. In 1936, Stein lectured at Oxford and Cambridge, and met with Lord Gerald Berners, who set her "They Must Be Wedded to Their Wife" as a ballet, The Wedding Banquet. The ballet was first performed the following year, and became part of the standard repertory of Sadler's Wells Ballet (later the Royal Ballet) for the next 20 years. Also In 1937, the lease on 27 rue de Fleurus ran out. In 1938, Stein and Toklas moved to 5, rue Christine, and Stein wrote the play Dr. Faustus Lights the Light s, and her only children's book, The World Is Round .
Stein and Toklas waited out the war in France, first in Billignin, and after the lease was cancelled in 1943, at Le Colombier, a house in the nearby town of Culoz. Although both Stein and Toklas were Jewish, they were protected by the historian Bernard Faÿ and, most probably, by Stein's status as a famous American. Stein continued to write during the war years, including Paris, France (1939, published in London in 1940), in homage to Paris, the novel Mrs. Reynolds, and The Winner Loses: A Picture of Occupied France . Stein's concern for France led her to sympathize with Marshal Petain, and she attempted an English translation of Petain's Paroles aux français. The American press reported the "liberation" of Stein and Toklas in September 1944, and she became immensely popular with GIs. Shortly afterwards, Stein wrote a play about life in an occupied country, In Savoy: A Play of the Resistance in France , that premiered as Yes Is For a Very Young Man in Pasadena, California, in 1946. In December 1944, Stein and Toklas returned to Paris. Stein's autobiographical Wars I Have Seen, begun in 1941/42, was published in 1945, becoming one of her most successful works. That same year, Stein visited American military bases in Germany, wrote Brewsie and Willie , a portrait of GIs in Europe, and began work on the libretto for her second opera with Virgil Thomson, The Mother of Us All , about the suffragist Susan B. Anthony; she finished the libretto the following year. She died in Neuilly, near Paris, on 27 July 1946, age seventy-two, following surgery for colon cancer; she was bured in Père Lachaise cemetery, Paris, on 22 October. Alice B. Toklas survived Stein by twenty years, dying on 7 March 1967; she is buried at Stein's side.
2. Addison M. Metcalf.
Addison McCrea Metcalf was born on 29 April 1914, in New York City, the younger child and only son of Williard L. Metcalf (1858-1925), artist and a founding member of the “Ten American Painters”, and his second wife, Henriette Alice McCrea (1888-1981). His parents separated a few years after his birth. He was raised partly in California, where he attended Webb School of Claremont. He was living in Long Beach, California, in 1935, and later studied in Europe, returning to the United States in August 1939. He attended the University of California at Berkeley for approximately two years, before enlisting in the U.S. army on 16 December 1941 at Hartford, Connecticut. After serving for four and one half years (apparently, with a slight physical deformity, as a baker, although he stated publicly that he was in military intelligence), he settled near his mother in Newtown, Connecticut, where he opened an antique shop, "At the Sign of the Fleur de Lys". In the early 1960s, he moved to New York City, where he worked as a librarian, first at the American Foundation of Religion and Psychiatry, and latterly at the Law Library at Fordham University. He died in New York City on 16 June 1983.
Metcalf became interested in Gertrude Stein and her works while still a student in California. Encouraged by Ella McKenna Friend Mielziner, the widow of the painter Leo Mielziner and a friend of Stein from the latter's early, formative years in Paris, he began seriously collecting works by, and materials relating to, Stein after he settled in Connecticut in 1945, and by the mid-1950s had built a collection that according to Stein's literary co-executor, Carl Van Vechten, was second only to Stein's official archive at Yale University. In 1955, Metcalf sponsored the publication of Absolutely Bob Brown; or, Bobbed Brown, a previously unpublished portrait by Gertrude Stein . In 1964, he wrote and performed "A Sentimental Journey Through the Works of Gertrude Stein", a one-man show of extracts from Stein's works. He also recorded selections from Stein's works that were issued by Folkways Records as "Mother Goose of Montparnasse" in 1965. Metcalf donated the bulk of his Gertrude Stein collection to Denison Library, Scripps College, in June 1959, adding further donations in following years, with a final bequest at his death. In his will he also bequeathed to the American Academy of Arts and Letters funds to create two biennial awards of $10,000 to honor young writers and artists of great promise, the Willard L. Metcalf Award in Art and the Addison M. Metcalf Award in Literature.

Scope and Contents of Collection

The Addison M. Metcalf Collection of Gertrude Steiniana consists of manuscripts, typescripts, correspondence, photographs, programs, brochures, catalogs, posters, flyers, scripts, musical scores, printed materials, artwork, sound recordings, ephemera, memorabilia, and other materials collected by Metcalf, primarily between 1945 and 1959, to document the life and work of Gertrude Stein, her reception by contemporaries, and the influence of her legacy in the first three decades after her death. Together with over 450 published volumes, held elsewhere in Denison Library, these materials constitute what Carl Van Vechten, Stein's literary executor, considered in the 1960s to be the greatest contemporary collection of Steiniana outside her official archive at Yale.
The collection is divided into eleven series.
Series 1: Manuscripts and typescripts, contains manuscript and typescript letters from and to Stein; typescripts of several of her works, some corrected in her hand or that of Alice B. Toklas; typescripts and galley proofs of published biographies, critical studies, and memoirs; and typescripts of unpublished dissertations and fictional representations of Gertrude Stein.
Series 2: Performance files, contains programs, posters, photographs, scripts, correspondence, reviews, costume and set designs, and other materials relating to the performance of Gertrude Stein’s works. The wide scope and range of the materials, encompassing professional, college, and local productions, is the result of Metcalf's goal to document every performance of Stein’s works within the United States, and whenever possible, elsewhere, prior to 1960. The materials from the premiere performances of Four Saints in Three Acts , and the materials relating to the Living Theatre's performances of Doctor Faustus Lights the Lights and Ladies' Voices are of particular interest.
Series 3: Scores and sheet music, contains music scores, primarily by Virgil Thomson and Martin Vernon, set to texts by Gertrude Stein. Many of the scores are in manuscript (photostat) and inscribed by the composer.
Series 4: Exhibitions contains catalogs, brochures, programs, posters, and other materials relating to exhibitions of Gertrude Stein's manuscripts and published works, and to museum and gallery exhibitions of artwork formerly owned by Gertrude Stein and her siblings, and of artists collected, supported, and championed by Gertrude, in particular Picasso, Matisse, Francis Rose, and Juan Gris.
Series 5: Photographs, contains contemporary and later copy prints of photographs of Gertrude Stein from 1905 onwards. Many of the images were taken by Carl Van Vechten, and most of these are signed by him. A large number date from the period 1934-1937, and include photographs of Stein at Bilignin and during her United States tour.
Series 6: Printed materials, contains complete original copies of almost all periodical issues in which Gertrude Stein's work appeared during her lifetime. Additional periodical issues, published during and after Stein's lifetime, contain reviews and discussions of Stein's works, American literature, modern art, and American expatriots in France between the World Wars; many of the articles are signed by the authors. The series also includes clippings of newspaper articles from a scrapbook compiled by Metcalf in the 1950s, relating to Stein, her works, her interest in art, her contemporary reception, and her legacy..
Series 7: Correspondence, contains Metcalf's correspondence relating to Gertrude Stein and the formation of his collection of Steiniana. The correspondence (the bulk being letters received) consists of routine correspondence from booksellers, galleries, producers, photographers, and newspapers; correspondence from other Stein admirers and collectors; correspondence from scholars, sharing their knowledge and expertise; and, of particular importance, correspondence from people who had known Stein, relating their memories and "impressions” of Stein. The correspondence also sheds light on Metcalf's own personality, his monomania for Gertrude Stein, and his romantic obsessions.
Series 8: Artwork, consists of artwork, both original and reproduction, relating to Gertrude Stein, collected by Addison Metcalf between approximately 1950 and 1970. Of the original pieces, the charcoal portrait by Peggy Bacon (1935), the watercolors by Stephen Longstreet (1928-1938), and the collage by Pavel Fyodorovitch Tchelitchew (1929), date from Stein's lifetime. The series includes a number of works dating from the years 1963-1966, by Edward Meneeley, Albert Vanderburg, Howard Hussey, and David Prentice, of which some, and possibly all, were commissioned by Metcalf.
Series 9: Sound recordings and film, consists primarily of sound recordings of works by and relating to Gertrude Stein, performed by herself and others. Of special interest are the recordings of Stein reading from her own works during her 1934-1935 United States tour; performances of several of her works; and a telecast of Pat Bond's one-woman show, Gerty, Gerty, Gerty, Is Back, Back, Back (circa 1979).
Series 10: Ephemera and memorabilia, contains ephemera and memorabilia relating to Gertrud Stein. The most important items are two plates designed in 1930 by Gertrude Stein for Carl Van Vechten, and executed by a pottery in the neighborhood of Bilignin, and two catalogs of Stein's works from 1930-1931.
Series 11: Personal and family papers, contains personal and family papers of Addison Metcalf. The most noteworthy materials are found in the James Ringo correspondence file, donated to the collection in the 1980s by Ringo, which contains letters of a personal nature from Metcalf to Ringo, and letters to and from Metcalf's relatives discussing the circumstances of his death. The series also includes a number of items relating to Metcalf's father, the painter Willard L. Metcalf.

This series contains programs, posters, flyers, handbills, photographs, performance schedules, scripts, correspondence, reviews, costume and set designs, tickets, financial accounts, and other materials relating to the performance of Gertrude Stein’s works and to musical, dance, and theatrical performances based on, or inspired by, Stein's works. Addison Metcalf sought to acquire documentation on every performance of Stein’s works within the United States, and whenever possible, elsewhere, prior to 1960, and the series is rich in materials from professional, college, and local productions. The most significant materials relate to performances of the operas Four Saints in Three Acts and The Mother of Us All, both written with Virgil Thomson; of the plays Doctor Faustus Lights the Lights , Ladies' Voices, and Yes Is For a Very Young Man; and of the ballet, Wedding Bouquet, written with Lord Berners.

  • Sub-subseries 2.1.1: Selections from Gertrude Stein's works and lectures and workshops on her works

Scope and Contents note

This subseries contains programs, posters, flyers, handbills, photographs, performance schedules, scripts, correspondence, reviews, costume and set designs, tickets, financial accounts, and other materials relating to the performance of Gertrude Stein’s works. The breadth of materials, from professional, college, and local productions, reflects Addison Metcalf's attempt to acquire documentation on every performance of Stein’s works within the United States and elsewhere prior to 1960. The most significant materials relate to performances of the operas Four Saints in Three Acts and The Mother of Us All, both written with Virgil Thomson; of the plays Doctor Faustus Lights the Lights , Ladies' Voices , and Yes Is For a Very Young Man ; and of the ballet, Wedding Bouquet , written with Lord Berners.
The materials relating to Four Saints in Three Acts include souvenir programs and programs of the world premiere in Hartford, Connecticut, in February 1934, as well as programs, flyers, photographs, and reviews of the first performances in New York City, at the Forty-Fourth Street and Empire Theatres, in March and April of that year, as well as of the first performance in Chicago, in November. Additional materials also include programs, flyers, and reviews of the 1952 American National Theatre and Academy performance at the Broadway Theatre in New York and at the Théatre des Champs Élysées in Paris, of a Japanese production in 1953; of de Paur’s Opera Gala 1957 tour; and of several college and local productions of the entire work and selections from it.
The materials relating to performances of The Mother of Us All include programs, articles, reviews, and photographs by Carl Van Vechten of the original 1947 production by Columbia Theatre Associates, as well as a 1949 production at Western Reserve University, a 1952 performance by the Babylon (New York) Symphony Orchestra, a 1953 performance by the University of California Berkeley Studio Theater, and 1956 performances by the Adams House (Harvard University) Music Society and at the Phoenix Theatre in New York.
The most significant performance records for Doctor Faustus Lights the Lights are those of Julian Beck and Judith Malina’s Living Theatre’s 1951 production. These include a typed script, Beck’s original costume designs, set designs, programs, flyers, reviews, financial accounts, tickets, and draft correspondence relating to Beck and Malina’s inability to pay royalties to the Stein estate and their struggle to subsist.
The series includes similar documents, including handcrafted programs and posters from the Living Theatre’s 1951 production, in Beck and Malina’s apartment, of Ladies’ Voices, and from their production the following year in the Cherry Lane Theatre. The After Dinner Opera Company frequently performed Ladies’ Voices in the decade from 1956 to 1965, often in conjunction with Stein’s In a Garden, and the series contains programs and posters from many of these productions.
Records for Yes Is For a Very Young Man include a review of the original 1946 production at the Pasadena (California) Playhouse; programs, reviews, and posters of the 1948 productions by the Princeton Theatre Intime and the Princeton University Players; and photographs by Martha Swope, Carl Van Vechten, and John Vickers.
Sadler’s Wells Ballet (later the Royal Ballet) premiered Wedding Bouquet in its 1936-37 season, and the work was part of the company’s standard repertory into the 1960s. The series includes souvenir and performance programs for many of these productions, including the Ballet’s first American appearance in 1949, and its 1950-51 United States tour, and photographs, circa 1948-1950, by Felix Fonteyn.
Additional materials include programs, performance schedules, posters, and publicity relating to the After Dinner Opera Company’s 1956 European tour, and subsequent United States appearances performing In a Garden; signed programs and other documents relating to the Touring Players Company 1952-1953 production of Brewsie and Willie, and programs, correspondence, performance schedule, and a photograph relating to the Randall School (Hartford, Connecticut) 1957-1950 productions of What Happened.

Scope and Contents note

This series contains print and manuscript (primarily photostat) scores of music set to texts by Gertrude Stein. The principal composers represented are Virgil Thomson and Martin Vernon. Only Thomson's Four Saints in Three Acts was written in collaboration with Stein; indeed, with few exceptions, all the other music in the series was composed after Stein's death. The scores by Johnny Fig, Harold Rome ("A Rose is a Rose", from Bless You All), and Charles Strouse and Lee Adams ("Rosie", from Bye Bye Birdie ) were acquired by Metcalf because of their references to roses. Most of the materials are inscribed by the composers to Addison Metcalf. Performance scores for individual works can be found in Series 2.

Scope and Contents note

They include works, and reviews of works, by Gertrude Stein and others in her circle; accounts of the American and French literary and art scenes in the first half of the 20th century; accounts of American expatriots in Paris between the World Wars. The scrapbook was disassembled in 2013, and the contents photocopied on acid-free bond paper; the originals were destroyed. The materials are arranged alphabetically by author/subject/publication; Stein's works are arranged alphabetically by title. Announcements and reviews of performances of Gertrude Stein's works and of exhibitions of works by artists connected with Stein have been filed with the appropriate performance or exhibition in Series 2..

Series 7:  Addison Metcalf correspondence, 1951-1974 (bulk, 1951-1959).

Physical Description: 5 linear feet

Scope and Contents note

This series contains Addison Metcalf’s correspondence relating to Gertrude Stein and his collection of Steiniana. The bulk of the collection consists of letters received; however, the Bruce Kellner correspondence file includes Metcalf’s letters to Kellner (most typed on rose-colored paper, an affectation borrowed from Allison Delarue), donated to the collection by Kellner in 1986 and 1987. The correspondence may be broadly divided into the following types: (1) routine correspondence from booksellers, galleries, producers, photographers, newspapers; (2) correspondence from other Stein admirers and collectors, much of it of a “pen pal” type; (3) correspondence from scholars, sharing their knowledge and expertise; and (4) correspondence from people who had known Stein, writing in response to Metcalf’s request for an “impression”. The primary correspondents are Carl Van Vechten (“Carlo”), Stein’s literary executor; Bob Brown and Robert B. Haas, from whom Metcalf obtained most of the original Gertrude Stein materials listed in Subseries 1.1; the novelist John Breon; Allison Delarue, of the McCarter Theatre at Princeton; Bruce Kellner; Ella MacKenna Friend Mielziner, widow of the painter Leo Mielziner; Russell W. Nash; Elizabeth Sprigge; the dancer Robert Tynes; Tennessee Wild, of The Dance Mart; Isabel and Thornton Wilder; and Yale University Library, represented primarily by Donald Gallup. Other letters of particular interest include correspondence with the After Dinner Opera Company, Peggy Bacon, Christopher Blake, Paul F. Bowles, Robert E. Finley, George J. Firmage, the Living Theatre, Stephen Longstreet, Robert McAlmon, Henry McBride, Murray D. Morrison, Norman Holmes Pearson, Richard Rummonds, Samuel M. Steward, Virgil Thomson, Alice B. Toklas, and Robert A. Wilson. The correspondence with Breon, Delarue, Kellner, and, in particular, Rummonds and Tynes (for both of whom Metcalf developed a romantic infatuation), includes many letters of a very personal nature. The Kellner correspondence file includes two letters from Kellner to Scripps College Librarian Judy Harvey-Sahak, 1986-1987, describing Metcalf’s personality, obsession with Gertrude Stein, and tortured personal relationships. Metcalf was also the center (“le premiere rose”) of a small group of Stein enthusiasts, including Robert A. Wilson (“le deuxieme rose”), David White (“the fourth rose”), and Marcus Goodrich (“Marcus Aurelius”). The series also documents Metcalf’s unsuccessful efforts to have a rose named after Gertrude Stein, and his participation in the successful movement to have the rose declared the state flower of New York.

Series 8:  Art works, 1926-circa 1970.

Scope and Contents note

This series consists of artwork relating to Gertrude Stein, collected by Addison Metcalf between approximately 1950 and 1970. Of these works, the charcoal portrait by Peggy Bacon (1935), the watercolors by Stephen Longstreet (1928-1938), the collage by Pavel Fyodorovitch Tchelitchew (1929), and the portrait by Kristians Tonny (1930, reproduction), date from Stein's lifetime. Stein had been perhaps Sir Francis Rose's (border illustration for The World Is Round, circa 1948) staunchest supporter. The series includes several works by Edward Meneeley (1927-2015) and Albert Vanderburg (born 1940), Meneeley's partner, all dating from the period 1963-1965. They and Howard Hussey had been contemporaries at the New York Studio School of Drawing, Painting, and Sculpture. David Prentice's acrylic "Alice B." was commissioned by Metcalf in 1966; some or all of the other artwork from the early 1960s may also have been similarly commissioned. Jane Chambers has not been conclusively identified, but may be the playwright of that name (1937-1983), who pioneered writing theatrical works with openly lesbian characters. Harrie Wood (1902-1978), a painter and illustrator, was a family friend of the Metcalf family who also eventually settled in Newtown, Connecticut. T. E. Wood, who has not been identified, may be related to Harrie, possibly of an earlier generation.
