SERIES: 3. Manuscripts Series


SERIES DESCRIPTION: This series includes boxes 3 through 5 and contains Alan Redway's notes,manuscript drafts, and typescripts for his Graham Greene bibliography. Theorganization of the material is based on the original folders labelled byRedway and on the bibliographic sequence of sections or "lists" used byRedway (who basically followed the standard sequence used by mostbibliographers) as shown: "A" List - books by GG "B" List - GG's contributions to books (including. introductions, anthologies) "C" List - Submissions by GG to periodicals "D" List - GG books in translation "E" & "F" Lists - dramatizations/films of GG works "G" List - designated by Redway for "miscellaneous publications: G-1 for group letters; G-2 for interviews; G-3 for GG's comments on books (usually printed for the blurbs on dust jackets); G-4 for editions for the visually impaired; G-5 for educational editions; and G-6 for plagiaries. "H" List - unpublished writings by GG "X" List - advertisements of GG's books. This was probably notseriously meant for inclusion in the final publication (see folder 3:5). Where an original, labelled folder existed a notation has been made in thedescription for the folder and the label transcribed. The first box in theseries (box 3) includes miscellaneous odds and ends (unrelated to hisbibliographic work) belonging to Redway that arrived with the accession(see folder 3:1), as well as notes for the bibliography taken by NeilBrennan's daughter, Margaret, at the Humanities Research Center, Universityof Texas, Austin, in 1981 (included here because they are manuscriptsrelating directly to AR's own notes for the bibliography). It should benoted that much of the material in this series was probably generated byAR's collaborator Neil Brennan (and some possibly by the third collaboratorCecil Woolf).

SERIES DESCRIPTION: Contains primarily carbon/xerox copies of typescripts of letters (including letters to editors); poetry, commentaries, essays submitted to periodicals by GG.

Strong in "Eighty Poems" (1935); 1 folder of dust jackets and playbills for various GG books and plays; and 1 folder of miscellaneous note fragments and information related to GG and the Greene family probably collected by AR at one time or another.
