Biographical/Historical Information

Wallace Warner Douglas was born on December 10, 1914, in Chicago, Illinois. He received his B.A. from Colgate (1936), M.A. from University of Chicago (1937), and his Ph.D. from Harvard (1946).

He came to Northwestern University as an instructor in English in September, 1945. He was promoted to assistant professor in 1948, associate professor, 1955, and professor, 1964. Douglas became emeritus in 1980. Much of his work, especially in later years, was involved with composition.

Before coming to Northwestern, Douglas was a teaching assistant at Indiana University, 1937-1940, and an instructor at Williams College from June 1942 to October 1944. From 1940 to 1942 and late 1944 to June 1945, he was working toward his doctoral degree at Harvard.

In 1951-1952 he had an American Council of Learned Societies fellowship to study modern anthropologic theories that had influenced current theories about the nature and purpose of literature. Douglas had two Guggenheim Foundation fellowships: 1953-1954, to study Wordsworth, and 1972-1973 to study the history of the teaching of English composition in the United States.

Douglas was active in several organizations, especially the National Council of Teachers of English and the Modern Language Association. Wallace Douglas died in 1995.

Scope and Content

Boxes 1 - 4: The Wallace W. Douglas Papers fill three and a half boxes and span the period 1930-1976 with the bulk of the material falling between 1950 and 1973. The papers are divided into three main categories: education, correspondence and teaching files, with small amounts of biographical material, one research file, speech and publications.

The education files are mainly notes on Douglas' Ph.D. thesis. The general correspondence deals primarily with Douglas' academic and professional activities. One folder (Box 1, Folder 15) pertains to the Department of English's Committee on Departmental Organization which he chaired (1968-1969.)

The teaching files contain mostly examination sheets and course descriptions. Douglas' interest in composition is represented in materials relating to the Committee on Composition (Box 1, Folder 28) and two folders relating to the N.D.E.A.-sponsored institute on writing in 1967 (Box 2, Folders 1 - 2).

Addition, Boxes 5-22

This addition to the Wallace W. Douglas Papers fills 18 boxes and spans the period 1906-1995, with the bulk of the material falling between 1934 and 1989. The papers are divided into nine categories: biographical information, education files, correspondence (both general and subject), teaching files, research files, professional associations and conferences files, papers presented, publications, and reviews.

The biographical materials, spanning the years 1906-1995, are arranged chronologically by date within each folder, and consist of date books, address books, financial and tax records, an interview with Douglas, obituaries and memorial service programs. Also included are the financial records and correspondence of the Lee and Eleanor Douglas Estate.

The education files span the years 1934-1945. Included are papers and notes from Douglas' undergraduate years at Colgate, six chapters from an unidentified manuscript about a fictitious man named Martin Griggs, a few papers from Indiana University where Douglas was a teaching assistant, and his Harvard doctoral dissertation. The files are arranged in the order of the universities he attended and chronologically within each folder.

The correspondence fills four and a half boxes, and spans the years 1942 to 1989. The general correspondence is arranged chronologically and includes letters from C. P. Snow (March 14, 1960) and William Cooper (March 23, 1960). The subject correspondence is arranged alphabetically by surname of correspondent or topic, and chronologically within each folder. Prominent correspondents include Gwendolyn Brooks, Raymond Chandler, James T. Farrell, Anais Nin, Ezra Pound and Stephen Spender. The correspondence consists of personal letters, business letters, referrals, recommendations and copies of papers sent to Douglas to critique.

The teaching files, spanning the years 1945-1987, fill a little more than two boxes and are arranged by course or subject, and chronologically within each folder. Typically included are lecture notes, syllabi, final exams and student papers (arranged alphabetically by student surname within a folder). The teaching files also include grade books from 1945-1987 and subject notes.

The research files, spanning the years 1961-1981, include notes and writings relating to some of Douglas' areas of interest and research. The folders are arranged alphabetically by subject and chronologically within folders. The bulk of the research files concern the subject described by Douglas as “primary writing” (the writing that children do while learning how to write). These folders typically contain writing samples of children up to the eighth grade, with a few examples of older writers, correspondence with various school teachers, and correspondence between the young writers and Douglas.

The professional associations and conferences files, spanning the years 1957-1985 and filling three boxes, is arranged alphabetically by association and by subject under each association. Records within folders are arranged chronologically. Folders typically contain information concerning conferences that Douglas attended. Included are programs, agendas, travel arrangements, correspondence, proposals for presentations and lists of participants. Professional associations and conferences represented in the files include: ADE, Annual English Language Arts Conference, CCCC, Coe Faculty Conference, College English Association, Dartmouth Seminar, Fulbright Teacher Exchange, CONPASS, MLA, NCTE, NDEA Institute on EIMC Materials, NTE, Northwestern University Writing Program, Writing as a Process Institute, Wyoming Conference on Freshman and Sophomore English, and the York International Conference on the Teaching of English. A large amount of the material is related to two conferences: the Dartmouth Seminar (1966) and the York International Conference on the Teaching and Learning of English (1971).

The Dartmouth Seminar was a month long conference for fifty participants from England, the United States and Canada held at Dartmouth College in 1966 to analyze the teaching of the English language. Included in the files are study group and working party notes and papers, correspondence, and resulting programs.

The York International Conference on the Teaching and Learning of English, held in 1971, was an open conference for 500 teachers, lecturers and administrators, and convened to answer the questions that the Dartmouth Conference had raised. The York files include lists of participants, commission notes, minutes and papers, correspondence, general information and Programs.

The papers presented files, span the years 1957-1981 and fill two boxes. Included are papers Douglas presented at conferences, seminars and dinners. The papers are arranged in alphabetical order by title and folders typically contain various drafts of the paper. Correspondence may also be included.

Publications files, including book chapters and articles, span the period 1949-1984 and fill two boxes. They are arranged alphabetically by title. The folders may contain various drafts, final versions, advertisements and correspondence.

The review files, comprised of book reviews written by Douglas, span the years 1953-1981 and fill one box. The folders contain various drafts of the reviews and several also contain small amounts of correspondence.

The final two boxes contain unidentified manuscripts, notes and writings. They are arranged alphabetically by the first sentence of the manuscript or topic.
