Biographical/Historical Information

Author Hal Higdon was born on the south side of Chicago on June 17, 1931, the son of Harry J. and Mae O'Leary Higdon. His father, director of advertising for the Phoenix Metal Cap Company, was the long-time editor of the well-known industrial publication The Phoenix Flame, as well as a frequent contributor to the Chicago Tribune. His mother had worked for the Chicago Herald and Examiner.

In 1953, Higdon received his B.A. from Carleton College. He served from 1954 to 1956 in the United States Army. In 1957, he became assistant editor of Kiwanis Magazine in Chicago. On April 12, 1958, he married Rose Mussacchio. They have three children: Kevin, David, and Laura. In 1959, Higdon began a full-time career as a free-lance writer, writing for such national magazines as the New York Times Magazine, Good Housekeeping, National Geographic, Sports Illustrated, This Week, the Chicago Tribune Magazine, and Playboy. He also authored or edited over a dozen books, primarily non-fiction, on varied topics ranging from sports to management consulting firms. Higdon also edited a volume entitled Pro Football, U.S.A. (Putnam, 1968) and contributed to Together, a casebook of joint practices in primary care under the general editorship of Berton Roueche for the National Joint Practices Commission, 1977.

An avid sports fan, Higdon competed as a long distance runner. He won a gold medal in the steeplechase at the World Masters track meet in 1957 and finished first (of the Americans) in the 1964 Boston Marathon. Winner of several national championships, he placed first in the 10,000 meter run at the U.S. Masters Championships (for runners over forty), and won the United States Masters cross country race. He has been a member of the National Road Runners Club as well as the Society of Magazine Writers. He acted in numerous plays at the Dunes Summer Theatre near his home in Michigan City

Scope and Content

The Hal Higdon Papers, comprising three boxes of material spanning the years 1961-1973, consist primarily of research and background material for Higdon's articles on management consulting and his book The Business Healers. Also included are typed manuscript chapters of The Business Healers in various stages of revision.

The correspondence and research materials, the bulk of which falls between 1965 and 1971, is divided into three categories: general, sales, and post-publication comment.

The research materials for The Business Healers include interview notes and transcripts of interviews; articles and newspaper clippings; correspondence and reports.

The material pertaining to The Business Healers includes: text outlines; correspondence concerning potentially libelous sections; publication advertising; its introduction; all typed manuscript chapters of the text, except for the twelfth chapter; typescript sections not included in the final text; and appendix materials. The typed manuscript for Chapter XII entitled "The Business of Hiring the Boss" could not be located, but an early version of the chapter is contained in Box 1, Folder 9.

A few galley proofs are scattered within the folders. The chapter folders contain typed manuscript copies in various rewrite stages. The stage closest to the final publication version has been placed on top, with drafts below stretching back to the earliest draft on the bottom.

Description of the Additions, Boxes 4-18 (1963-1983)

The additions to the Hal Higdon Papers comprise fifteen boxes (including one half-size box), spanning the years 1963-1983, and consist mainly of correspondence, research, background material, and many drafts and typescripts, for his numerous books and magazine articles, as well as several unpublished and unfinished projects. The additions reflect Higdon's research process on a variety of different projects, many of them sports-related, ranging from running to race-cars. Of interest are the series of interviews with sports figures for such books as Finding the Groove (about the Indy 500) and Hitting, Pitching, and Fielding. Materials relate both to publications under Higdon's name as well as his ghost-writing projects.

The original order of the manuscript files as maintained by Higdon has been retained, based upon the bibliography of his works, compiled by Higdon himself, which can be found in box 4, folder 1. Along with the bibliography, Higdon included one-page typewritten summaries, explaining the process of writing each of the works contained here.

These summaries vividly reveal the personality and method of a busy professional writer. They shed some insight into how Higdon came up with ideas for his books, how he worked through the process of creating them, and his relationships (and in some case, struggles) with his editors. For example, several of his works are based upon tape-recorded interviews (Pro Football, USA, Finding the Groove, Find the Key Man, Hitting, Pitching and Fielding among them). The reason for this is simple: it was successful. As each book created using this format did well, Higdon and his editors decided to do another book, focusing on a different sport.

These summaries also show is that Higdon's fictional children's books (The Horse That Played Center Field, The Electronic Olympics, and The Last Season) were created during brainstorming sessions between Higdon and his editor, most often during lulls between Higdon's other writing assignments.

The summaries also chronicle in brief fashion Higdon's relationship with Bob Anderson, his editor at Runner's World magazine and World Publications. Higdon later began working for another running magazine, The Runner.

With the exception of Report from POD Four, the unpublished or unfinished works in the collection came about in the same way: in each case, Higdon was approached by an outside party interested in a book being written on a certain topic or person, Higdon did a fair amount of work on it (if not outright completing it), and then determined that there would be no market for the work. Report from POD Four, on the other hand, was written as a labor of love; the manuscript chronicled Rose Higdon's return to teaching.

The folders have been arranged based upon the working process of creating each book (for example, the folders begin with correspondence about the work, followed by any working materials, interviews, and any additional or side articles written from his notes. These are followed by outlines, drafts, and typescripts of the book itself, and finally, by reviews of the book). Not all of his total works are represented here, nor are all of the above mentioned steps to be found for each of the books.

Royalties files document Higdon's relationships with publishers, including Higdon's long-running efforts (and eventual lawsuit) to reclaim royalties.

Arrangement of Materials

The original order of the papers as maintained by Higdon has been essentially retained, but material within each folder has been rearranged chronologically. The folders have been arranged by correspondence and research materials; research materials for The Business Healers; and materials pertinent to the writing of The Business Healers.
