All Series Level Scope and Content Notes

Scope and Contents Note

The William Gaddis papers consist largely of his own manuscript material: manuscripts and source material toward his books, drafts of various stories, published and unpublished, as well as essays, reviews, interviews, and a miscellaneous assortment of notes and other materials. Also present is a substantial amount of personal and general correspondence, primarily with family, friends, and fans. In addition, there is a relatively large amount of correspondence to editors, translators, and publishers, as well as correspondence with his colleagues in the literary community.


Consists of incoming and outgoing general correspondence, business correspondence, and family correspondence. Boxes and folders are arranged chronologically. The materials that make up this series were transferred from folders within the initial accession that were made up entirely of correspondence. This series has a separate box numbering system that does not relate to Gaddis' original inventory.

Additional correspondence relating to William Gaddis can be found in the the Charles Monaghan Papers, the Stanley Elkin Papers, the William H. Gass Papers, the Richard Hazelton Papers, and the Donald Oresman Papers.


This material consists primarily of correspondence written by William Gaddis to his mother while at boarding school, Sarah Gaddis, and Matthew Gaddis.
