Table of contents What's This?
The collection relates mainly to de Mille's research and writings on Carlos Castaneda. The collection was received in 1980 and the correspondence (mostly photocopies) was restricted until 1990. Footnotes to Chapter 40 of The Don Juan Papers (1980) provide an early, brief description of the collection.
Richard de Mille was born on Feb. 12, 1922 in Los Angeles, California. His father was film producer Cecil B. de Mille and his mother was Constance A. Adams de Mille. From 1943 to 1946 he worked with an Air Force motion picture film unit in Culver City, which produced 'Thunderbolt,' a World War II film of air action over Italy. From 1946 to 1950 he was a writer and director at Paramount Television, in Hollywood. The following few years he primarily wrote science fiction.
