    Scope and Content

    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.

    1. excerpts from Christopher Wren
    2. typescript of Man's Most Dangerous Myth
    3. typescript of Success (scenario)

    Biographical Note

    English author.


    File 6 letter from William Morrow. Co Aug. 10 1932 is erroneously filed. Does not appear to have any connection with a Huxley work.
    File 7 The first 2 letters written by A. Huxly to Jake Zeillin in 1942 and 1943 Seem to be out of place in a correspondence marked Correspondence from publishers 1934.
