Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
This collection includes over fifty years' worth of materials on the author B. Traven collected by Herbert and Mina Klein. The holdings are divided into the following sections, which largely correspond to Herbert Klein's original ordering of the material.
Herbert Arthur Klein, a journalist and author, and his wife, Mina Cooper Klein, had a life-long fascination with the works of B. Traven. For over fifty years, the Kleins collected many different kinds of material on Traven. They also translated and edited a collection of short stories by Traven, The Kidnapped Saint (Lawrence Hill, 1974).
