The collection consists of chiefly of manuscripts submitted to
Lloyd Stephens Bryce (1851-1917) for publication while he worked as the editor for the North American Review in the late 1880s
and 1890s and correspondence
addressed to Bryce, chiefly concerning editorial matters.
Lloyd Stephens Bryce was a politician and author who was born on September 20, 1851, in Flushing, Long Island. After a boyhood
in Georgetown, D.C., he traveled in Europe and
graduated from Christ Church, Oxford, in 1874. Bryce returned to the United States and in 1879 married Edith Cooper of New
York. After receiving a law degree he entered politics,
winning a seat in the United States Congress in 1886. His novel Paradise appeared the next year and, following his defeat
for re-election to Congress, Bryce turned to literature, publishing
The Romance of an Alter Ego (1889; reissued as An Extraordinary Experience in 1891), Friends in Exile
(1893), and Lady Blanche's Salon (1899).
