Two Archival Arrivals: Bellow and Bukowski

Daily News

Online Only, posted 9.30.05

The University of Chicago recently acquired valuable archival material from the estate of the late Nobel laureate Saul Bellow. The archive, which contains 150 boxes of manuscripts, essays, speeches, notes, and letters to such authors as John Cheever, Bernard Malamud, and Philip Roth, will be combined with the university's existing Bellow archive, which the author donated before his death. The new manuscripts will be immediately available to scholars; the remainder will become available sometime in the future. Bellow, who died on April 5, 2005, was a faculty member at the University of Chicago for more than thirty years.

In other literary archive news, the widow of the late Charles Bukowski recently donated more than a thousand items from the author's life, including a typed draft of his 1982 novel Ham on Rye, the screenplay for the 1987 movie Barfly, and scratch forms for horse races at Santa Anita Park, to the Huntington Library in San Marino, California. The archive was valued at more than $1 million. Bukowski died of leukemia in 1994.
