This collection consists of the diaries, correspondence, and other materials, of writer, teacher, literature and film critic Mashey Bernstein (1946-).
Mashey Bernstein (1946-) grew up in an orthodox Jewish home in Dublin Ireland, and attended Trinity College, where he earned his degree in English language and literature, and a diploma in Education. Bernstein was deeply involved in Jewish student and community organizations, and wrote for both college and community publications. Bernstein spent time in Israel from 1965 to 1966, and moved to the United States on a scholarship, where he received his MA and Ph.D. in American Literature (with special emphasis on the works of Norman Mailer) from the University of California, Santa Barbara, in 1978.
