Scope and Contents Note

The Humanities Research Center at the University of Texas-Austin houses a collection of Berge's papers prior to 1970. Washington University's Berge Papers consist almost entirely of her professional and literary papers from 1970 to the present. They include an extensive collection of correspondence with contemporary literary figures which includes carbons of many of Berge's letters to her correspondents. The Berge Papers also contain correspondence, manuscripts, drafts, proofs, and promotional material toward nearly all of her post-1970 books, notably Acts of Love, An American Romance, A Couple Called Moebius, and From A Soft Angle. Her Papers also house the archives of Center magazine, as well as material towards the issue of Mississippi Review that Berge edited. Of particular interest in the personal miscellany of Carol Berge's Papers are the flyers, brochures, and announcements concerning "happenings" and readings with which Berge was involved in New York City through the 1970's.
