Biographical/Historical Information

Frederic E. Faverty was born September 29, 1902 in Sparta, Illinois, the son of Clarence Walter and Amelia (Riemer) Faverty. Faverty joined the faculty of the English department at Northwestern University in 1930, where he remained until retirement in 1971. Faverty's research interests centered on English philology and he was a noted authority on the literature of Victorian England. However, much of his early research and writing focused on Medieval English literature.

He graduated from East St. Louis (Illinois) High School in 1920 after which he attended Washington University, receiving a B.A. degree and becoming a member of Phi Beta Kappa honorary fraternity in 1924. Between 1925 and 1928 Faverty served as an instructor of English at Adelbert College of Western Reserve University. Harvard awarded him both the M.A. (1929) and Ph.D. (1930) degrees in English. His doctoral dissertation was entitled, “Legends of Joseph, the Hebrew Patriarch, in European Literature of the Middle Ages.”

Faverty joined the faculty of Northwestern University as an instructor of English in 1930. Subsequently he earned promotions to assistant professor (1933-39), associate professor (1939-1945), and professor (1945-1971). Upon Faverty's retirement from teaching, Northwestern accorded him emeritus status. Faverty was chairman of Northwestern's English department between 1945 and 1958 and again during the summer of 1967. He held the Morrison Professorship of English from 1958 to his retirement. Also while at Northwestern, Faverty chaired the university's Lecture Coordinating Committee and Harris Lecture Committee. From 1945 to 1950 he served as editor of the Northwestern University Press and from 1936 through 1948 he edited the university's annual publication, Summaries of Doctoral Dissertations.

Faverty was active in numerous professional and scholarly organizations. He was a member of the American Association of University Professors and chaired the Public Relations Committee of the National Council of Teachers of English. Faverty was president of Northwestern's chapter of Phi Beta Kappa in 1946 and was a member (1957-1960) and chairman (1960) of the national organization's Christian Gauss Award Committee. He served on the evaluation panel of the National Foundation on the Arts and the Humanities (1966) and as a consultant on Victorian literature to the Modern Language Association of America. He was a member of the Society of Midland Authors and on the English department visiting committee for the Harvard Board of Overseers (1957-1961). Faverty also served on a doctoral examining committee for the University of Toronto (1967), on the editorial board of Victorian Poetry, and on the advisory board for Victorian Studies.

Faverty's research interests centered on English philology and he was a noted authority on the literature of Victorian England although much of his early research and writing focused on Medieval English literature. He wrote numerous journal, encyclopedia, and newspaper articles on literary topics as well as co-edited the Victorian Bibliographies appearing annually in Modern Philology from 1932 through 1936. Faverty was widely known for the scores of reviews and essays he wrote for the Chicago Tribune Magazine of Books between 1952 and 1972. From 1956 through 1959 Faverty was the author of a series of articles on literary classics, again published by the Chicago Tribune Magazine of Books. Many of these articles, grouped under the series title, “Our Literary Heritage,” were republished in Faverty's book, Your Literary Heritage (J.B. Lippincott Company, 1959). Faverty's other major publications include Matthew Arnold the Ethnologist (Northwestern University Press, 1951) and The Victorian Poets, A Guide to Research (Harvard University Press, 1956; second edition, 1968).

Faverty married Margaret Ellen Beckett on June 20, 1934. The Favertys had two children: Kathleen Margaret and Richard Beckett. Professor Faverty died on August 9, 1981.

Scope and Content

The Frederic E. Faverty Papers are arranged in nineteen and one-half boxes and one oversize package. They span the period 1920-1982. The Papers are organized into eight subseries: biographical materials, general correspondence, Harvard University materials, Northwestern University materials, teaching materials and lecture notes, graduate student records, subject files, and publications files.

Biographical materials date between 1920 and 1981 and are arranged in three folders. These materials include clippings, vitae, and related items generally pertaining to Faverty's travel, research, academic appointments, lectures and addresses, and publications.

The general correspondence fills nearly two boxes and is arranged chronologically within folders. It is largely incoming and mainly concerns the academic and research interests of Faverty and his close professional colleagues. Requests by colleagues and students for recommendations also may be found within the general correspondence along with scattered correspondence of a social nature.

Harvard University materials, arranged in nine folders, include mainly course notes, examinations, and research papers dating from Faverty's graduate study during the period 1926-1930. A draft of his doctoral dissertation is filed with these materials.

The Northwestern University materials fill about one-half box and document Faverty's academic appointments as well as some of his administrative responsibilities within both the English department and the university as a whole. Two folders of recommendations, written for Northwestern students and colleagues, are filed here.

Comprising nearly three boxes, the teaching materials and lecture notes span the length of Faverty's teaching career. Included are syllabi, bibliographies, lecture notes and outlines, examinations, and related materials mainly from Faverty's undergraduate and graduate English courses at Northwestern. A small amount of materials from his courses at Western Reserve University are foldered together in front of the Northwestern records. Three folders and one oversize volume of grade records date from 1930 through 1971. Miscellaneous and undated research and lecture notes on a number of topics are filed at the end of this subseries.

Graduate student records largely date from the mid-1960s and early 1970s, fill about one and one-half boxes, and include correspondence and related materials pertaining to graduate coursework and student admission to degree candidacy, dissertation prospectuses, examinations, placement materials, and recommendations for Faverty's graduate advisees. Materials on individual students are foldered together and folders are arranged alphabetically according to student surname. A small amount of general administrative materials are foldered at the front of the student files.

Subject files are arranged alphabetically by topical headings in over two boxes. These files concern Faverty's research and professional work, organizational memberships and service, and related scholarly activities.

The publications files form the largest component of the Papers, filling more than eight boxes. These files date from the late 1920s through the early 1970s although much of the material found here is undated. Included are research notes, correspondence, and drafts of Faverty's major works: “Joseph and Potiphar's Wife,” Matthew Arnold the Ethnologist, The Victorian Poets, A Guide to Research, the “Our Literary Heritage” series, and the book, Your Literary Heritage. Journal and encyclopedia articles, brief publications, and related materials are arranged alphabetically by title or topic heading following the major works. Finally, book reviews in both published and draft form are arranged in alphabetical order according to surname of author or title of subject reviewed.

Two additions to the series are included as well: correspondence and reports dating from 1944-1956 and letters and cards of sympathy sent to Mrs. Margaret Faverty following her husband's death.
