Addison Hibbard (1887-1945) Papers
Scope and Contents
The Addison Hibbard Papers fill four boxes (including one half-size box) and span the period 1911-1973, although practically all of the material falls within the years 1911-1945. The Papers are comprised of two categories: correspondence and publications. There are also seven folders of biographical materials including two folders relating to Hibbard's graduate work.
The correspondence, mostly to Hibbard, contains many letters concerning Hibbard's publications, especially his syndicated newspaper column, "The Literary Lantern," and his anthologies. His correspondence with Southern writers, especially Olive Tilford Dargan, Ellen Glasgow, and DuBose Heyward, is of interest in presenting their views of both their own works and of others.
The publications consist mostly of articles, short stories, and poems, as well as a 220-page typescript, "Japan," narrates Hibbard's experiences as a teacher and traveler in that country.
