    Scope and Contents

    The collection contains letters and telegrams from Aldous Huxley's literary agents--James B. Pinker and Sons--to various persons, periodicals, etc. pertaining to Mr. Huxley's writings. These date from 1922 to 1934. This collection is not complete; for instance there are letters for May, 1931, the only correspondence for 1931. The literary agents had offices in New York City where Eric Pinker was in charge, and in London, where Ralph Pinker was in charge. The correspondence is mainly from them to various persons, or agencies, as for example Chatto and Windus in London. The correspondence also contains three letters by Huxley; one letter and a postcard to Stanford's Nathan Van Patten and one letter to Jake Zeitlin.
    Added to the collection at a later date are corrected typescritps, some signed, as well as an address by Huxley.
